GSK Says Flu Shot Shortage Not Linked To COVID-19 Vaccine Ramp Up
Speaking at the Financial Times’ virtual healthcare conference, Roger Conner said GSK, the world’s biggest vaccine maker by sales, had supplied doses for seasonal influenza, commonly known as flu, at its maximum possible levels this year.
GSK has supplied more than 85 million flu vaccine doses worldwide, with 50 million doses for the United states alone.
“The reason why there’s constraint on flu this year is just an unprecedented demand against the normal capacity. I don’t think it’s actually driven by the fact that coronavirus (vaccine) manufacturing is eating that capacity in any way,” Conner said.
