Israel: H1N1 flu vaccine not suitable for pregnant women, sick kids/ Haaretz:

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Ha'aretz tells us that Israel only has adjuvanted vaccine available currently, and

The Health Ministry has decided to hold off on giving the swine flu vaccine to pregnant women and chronically ill children because vaccine stocks now in Israel contain a substancewhose safety and effectiveness in pregnant women has not been fully substantiated.
They will be offered unadjuvanted vaccine when it becomes available in November.
