Bizarre twist in saga of bird flu vaccine. -- (South Devon Co UK)

 

A recent survey in Nursing Times showed that only 37 per cent of frontline nurses were planning to be vaccinated...........

So, why should healthcare workers refuse the vaccination? There are two important concerns — will it work and is it safe ? .....

The European Medicines Agency, which oversees the safety of all medicines in Europe, stated that, 'decades of experience with seasonal influenza vaccines indicate that insertion of a new strain in a vaccine… should not substantially affect the safety or level of protection offered'......

As healthcare workers we must ask ourselves whether we owe it to our patients to be protected.
