Poland won’t buy H1N1 vaccine until ‘properly tested’

Region:

WARSAW, Poland — Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk says his government won’t buy vaccines for swine flu that have not been properly tested or from producers who won’t take responsibility for possible side effects.

Tusk told reporters Friday that vaccine producers were pressuring governments to buy, but were also demanding that all responsibility and compensation for possible side effects should fall upon the governments purchasing the medicine.

He stressed that the few dozen swine cases in Poland have been mild and no deaths have been reported.
