UK: Under fives swine flu vaccination a ‘waste of resources’, say most GPs

(Researcher and retired neurosurgeon, Dr Russell Blaylock said  in part 9 of his lecture on Vaccines And Brain Development at YouTube, that when the flu vaccine was advocated by the CDC for children in the US, infant deaths from the flu shot up.  Prior to this, infants rarely died from the flu.)

Exclusive: The majority of GPs believe that vaccinating all healthy children under the age of five against swine flu is a poor use of NHS resources, a Pulse survey has found.

In a snapshot poll of 146 GPs, 56% said that the Government’s extension of the swine flu vaccination campaign to all children under the age of five was not ‘a good use of healthcare resources’.

The findings came as NHS managers claimed that GPs in some areas have now completed the vaccination of priority groups at their practices, and are now concentrating solely on vaccination of the under-fives.

Just over a third (34%) of respondents to Pulse’s survey, conducted over the past week, said their practice had now signed up to a local deal to carry out swine flu vaccination of the under fives, with a further 44% currently engaged in local negotiations.
