Ireland: Swine flu jabs for healthy children end

Belfast Telegraph Friday, 5 March 2010

Healthy children in Northern Ireland will not be vaccinated for swine flu after the end of March, the Department of Health has announced.

There was only one new detection of the virus last week and the number of GP consultations has fallen again.

The formal vaccination programme for those at risk will end, however health workers or those who develop an underlying illness or become pregnant can still be vaccinated.
