Belgium cuts Glaxo H1N1 vaccine order by a third

BRUSSELS, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Belgium has cut its order for GlaxoSmithKline's GSK.L swine flu vaccine Pandemrix by a third, the latest country to cancel part of its supply due to lower than expected demand.

The Belgian health ministry said on Friday the reduction in the H1N1 order presented a saving of about 33 million euros ($47.6 million). It had initially ordered 12.6 million doses of the vaccine.
