Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Na­tional Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Medicines (EOF) con­firmed re­ports yesterday that there are short­ages of some child vac­cines on the Greek mar­ket. EOF said that an in­creased global de­mand for whoop­ing cough jabs and lower pro­duc­tion due to stricter qual­ity checks has caused the short­age. It said that the drugs which are in short sup­ply are Te­travac, In­fan­rix Te­tra and Pen­tavac. EOF said that par­al­lel ex­ports of these drugs have been banned and more vac­cines have been or­dered.
