CSL Ltd., the only flu-vaccine maker in the Southern Hemisphere, starts the first human trials for its swine flu vax tomorrow in Adelaide. They plan to test the shot in 240 people, ages 18 to 64, during the next seven weeks in preparation for filling orders from Australia, the U.S. and Singapore.

CSL has a contract to supply 21 million doses to Australia's government, David said. It also has an order from the U.S. for $180 million of antigen, enough for 20 million to 40 million doses, depending on the results of trials, she said. The company has an order from Singapore, David said, declining to give details.

Novartis AG expects to start trials of its shot this month,

Sanofi plans to start tests of its shot in August,

The GlaxoSmithKline Plc spokesman declined to answer questions about the London-based drugmaker's plans to test its shot.

Baxter International Inc., based in Deerfield, Illinois, will produce a vaccine by early August, after which the company will perform clinical testing. The CDC has said it expects a vaccine ready for widespread distribution in October. (not FDA approved for the US yet)

Sinovac Biotech Ltd., a Beijing-based flu-vaccine maker, expects to complete production of the first batch of its shot by the end of this month and start trials after that

it will be interesting to compare the prices of the various
vaccines over time.
Is there a webpage which estimates that ?
Will there be a free secondary market for the vaccines ?
Governments may trade/exchange their doses - hard
to keep that all secret.
