Baxter in 'full production' of swine flu vaccine


DEERFIELD, Illinois (AP): Specialty drug maker Baxter International Inc. says it's in "full scale" production of a swine flu vaccine that will be commercially available in July.

The company based in Deerfield, Illinois, made its announcement Friday, a day after the World Health Organization declared swine flu a global pandemic.

Baxter has said that its patented technology cuts in half the usual time it takes to develop a vaccine - to about 13 weeks instead of 26.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 45 swine flu deaths nationwide.
