Afluria, CSL Biotherapies flu vaccine, can be pre-booked for the upcoming flu season

Concerned that you might not get enough flu vaccine for the next flu season? Not to worry. CSL Biotherapies said health providers can now pre-book its Afluria (influenza virus vaccine) for the 2008-2009 flu season. The King of Prussia, Pa., firm is a new vaccine provider, since it entered the U.S. market last season. CSL said it plans to produce about six million doses, largely thimerosal-free and in pre-filled syringes. To order, call (888) 435-8633 or go to
