Illinois Governor Says 200,000 More Doses of Flu Shot Found in Europe; FDA Approval Still Needed
Illinois officials have located 200,000 more doses of flu vaccine in Europe, but the state still hasn't received federal approval to import those or any other supplies of vaccine they have tracked down on the international market.
Tuesday's announcement came a day after Gov. Rod Blagojevich said his administration already had a tentative deal to purchase at least 62,000 doses. Both deals involve the same British wholesaler.
