Control of Vaccines and Serums
At the recent meeting of the Swiss cantonal directors of sanitary affairs, the necessity of government control of serums and vaccines was recognized. The use of these products has given rise to important industries in all countries, the control of which should be directed toward insuring efficacious, innocuous and authentic products. The control should apply to imported products as well as to those of private laboratories in Switzerland. Numerous countries already exercise control, and some of them allow the importation only of serums and vaccines that are controlled in the country where they are made. The federal government, by virtue of a law concerning epizootic diseases, now controls vaccines and serums for veterinary medicine. Such a law confers the necessary power for controlling other similar products.
