MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) - An executive at a Connecticut vaccine manufacturer says it is difficult to consider expanding in the state because the governor’s administration won’t commit to buying the vaccine for state workers.

Dan Adams is executive chairman of Meriden-based Protein Sciences, which makes the Flublok vaccine.

He said he was also frustrated that Gov. Dannel P. Malloy received a flu shot made by an overseas company. A Malloy spokesman says the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District administered the vaccine to the governor last Friday, using what was available.

Adams said he is still considering expanding the 100-employee company in Connecticut. He says Catherine Smith, the state’s economic development commissioner, has been talking with company executives.

A spokesman for the state Department of Economic and Community Development didn’t return a message Friday.
