Drug Firm GlaxoSmithKline Accused of 600% Mark-Up Profiteering on Swine Flu Vaccine
GlaxoSmithKline was today accused of profiteering from the swine flu pandemic after it emerged that it is making a 600 per cent mark-up on its vaccine for the virus.

The firm, which is one of several commissioned by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to produce a vaccine, said it had already agreed contracts for 195 million doses with 16 countries worldwide.

But it emerged today that the drug giant is charging the NHS £6 per dose, even though it admits the vaccine only costs £1 to produce.
