WHO: No licensed swine flu vaccine til end of year

"A fully licensed swine flu vaccine might not be available until the end of the year, a top official at the World Health Organization said Monday, in a report that could affect many countries' vaccination plans.

But countries could use emergency provisions to get the vaccines out quicker if they decide their populations need them, Marie-Paule Kieny, director of WHO's Initiative for Vaccine Research, said during a news conference."

Didn't Merck announce a vaccine would be ready quite soon just a few weeks ago?
