Editor, – We wish to comment on the New drugs section of Australian Prescriber in relation to H1N1 swine flu vaccine (Aust Prescr 2009;32:165-71). Even before launch, Australian consumers were asking for information on the vaccine. Readers may be interested in the depth and variety of questions asked of pharmacists operating Medicines Line (funded by National Prescribing Service - NPS).This national consumer telephone hotline provides information about prescription, over-the-counter and complementary medicines. Most (82%) of the 85 questions received between August and October 2009 related to vaccine safety. A representative sample of the questions is shown below.
