New swine flu vaccination could be approved in just 5 days

When medicines are first introduced to a chemist or doctors surgery, they have normally been tested on select groups of patients in years of clinical trials. However, the new swine flu vaccine could be approved for use in just 5 days.

The new vaccination will be introduced to the general pubic while regulators at the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) contine to carry our simultaneous clinical trials.

GPs are being told to prepare for a nationwide vaccination campaign as the UK government have now ordered enough to vaccinate the entire population.
