Vaccine clinics breaking the law
Private vaccination clinics are breaking the law by selling oral vaccines against cholera that patients are supposed to drink at home, reports Swedish Radio News.
According to Swedish law doctors and clinics are banned from selling medicines directly to patients, instead they are supposed to issue a prescription which the patient should take to a pharmacist.
However, several clinics have been selling the vaccines to their patients, and were unaware that the rules also applied to them.
The Board of Health and Welfare and the Medical Products Agency are now to look into the rules, according to Swedish Radio.
