Workers And Patients Refusing Swine Flu Vaccine In Britain
Many GPs and practice staff are refusing to be vaccinated against swine flu, even in ‘hot-spot’ areas where rates of infection are rising fastest. At some practices no front line staff have agreed to have the vaccine, despite BMA and Government warnings that it is ‘crucial’ to the success of the campaign. GPs warned there were early signs that take-up among patients might also be disappointing, amid continued fears over vaccine safety. Dr Liz Miller, a locum GP in London, said she would not recommend the vaccine to her patients because of safety concerns: ‘I do not intend to be vaccinated, nor will I recommend it to patients. It is untested and unnecessary. It’s time doctors started thinking for themselves instead of mindlessly obeying the Department of Health because they are terrified of missing out on free money.’
