The US has made no decision as to whether it will sell or cancel some of its orders of the H1N1 vaccine, according to a federal official.

The announcement comes after some European countries such as Germany and Switzerland said they will cancel or sell existing orders and stock.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Dr Anne Schuchat said that the US has ample supply and that people are still being encouraged to get vaccinated.

“We haven’t made any decisions here in the US about giving back vaccines,” Schuchat said.
