Swine 'flu vaccine information

The National Electronic Library for Medicines has published a fact sheet of supplementary information used by NHS Direct staff when advising about the swine 'flu vaccinations.

The fact sheet contains information in areas such as indications, contraindications, warnings and cautions, adverse effects and details about the vaccination programme.

The reference section provides links to other key resources including the European Medicines Agency portal. This website contains information about the medicines for pandemic influenza (H1N1) including the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPCs) for the three currently licensed vaccines available in Europe (Celvapan®, Focetria®, Pandemrix®) and antivirals (Tamiflu®, Relenza®).

Action: Clinicians will find plenty of useful information in these resources.
