QUEBEC – The federal government has signed a new deal with GlaxoSmithKline for influenza vaccines.

Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos announced the contract today in Quebec City, a four-year pact to produce and deliver domestic influenza vaccines with five one-year options to follow.

Canada has had a deal with GlaxoSmithKline for influenza vaccines since 2001.

Duclos says the deal includes an option to procure 80 million doses of influenza vaccine if a pandemic occurs and a minimum of four million doses annually to be used in publicly funded vaccination programs.
