FDA Approves New H1N1 Vaccine

The Federal Food and Drug Administration has approved a supplemental biologics license application for a new H1N1 vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline.

The approval allows the company to manufacture flu vaccines for adults which target this year's H1N1 strain. The Department of Health and Human Services has already placed an order with the drugmaker for 7.6 million doses.

GlaxoSmithKline expects to begin shipping the vaccine in December.
