Due to the very low demand for H1N1 flu vaccine -- less than a tenth of the population has gone for vaccination out of the 7.3 million doses ordered -- the Health Ministry has asked that the last two million of them not be shipped to Israel.

The company will grant credit for these vaccines, the ministry said on Tuesday. There are currently 4.6 million in the country after 700,000 were used. It is not known whether the purchased vaccines will be usable for more than a year.
