Government Won't Bankroll Vaccines

Published torsdag 16 juli 2009 kl 15.44

The Swedish government will not give county councils any extra money to cover the massive vaccination campaign against swine influenza (H1N1), Maria Larsson, the Minister for Public Health, announced on Wednesday.

Swedish Radio News reports that county council officials are very critical of the decision.

Norrbotten County commissioner Britt Westerlund says the vaccination campaign "is a national responsibility," and thinks that "the government should be part of it and ease the [financial] pressure on the county councils."

It is still unclear if patients will get the vaccination for free, or have to pay for part of it themselves.
