Dutch to buy 34 million doses of swine flu vaccine|
The ministry announced it decided to buy enough to vaccinate this entire country of 16.5 million people, plus inhabitants of the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba twice over. That's because a single vaccination against H1N1 might not offer enough protection, it said.
The ministry said it expected to sign contracts with unnamed vaccine suppliers on Friday for delivery in October and November. Experts estimate it is spending 350 million euros on the vaccines.
Nearly 90 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in the Netherlands, with no fatalities, according to the government's health institute RIVM. A real flu wave is expected to hit the Netherlands in the fall.

Summer begins in the northern hemisphere on Sunday, June 21st, at 5:45 am UT (1:45 am EDT) when the sun reaches its maximum declination above the celestial equator.
At the same moment, winter begins in the southern hemisphere.
Today, summer began in Poland with a sunrise display of noctilucent clouds. "They were so bright and beautiful," says Marcin Makowski who sends this photo from the city of Szubin:
It is a curious fact that noctilucent clouds, which are made of ice crystals, appear most often during the warm months of summer. In the last week alone, the clouds have put on a show over Europe that veteran observers say has been the best in years. Now that summer is here, the show can really begin. Northern sky watchers should be alert for electric blue.
