GPs 'bullied' into bulk prescribing flu medicine to whole care homes without necessary testing


(1) Yes , it is a concern with incidence rising to a level higher in three years(2/100,000) but it is still single figure . Of course , we cannot be complacent as the the figure is rising per week. It is essential for PHE to watch closely on these figures (2) The government needs to run a proper campaign to raise the awareness of vaccination. Indeed, the uptakes of flu vaccination could have been better last few years . Primary prevention is far more important than secondary prevention in this case. But I wonder if these idiots actually understand that? (3) But then , what do I know? 'Better campaign for flu vaccination , seriously ? We have to focus on our campaign for general election , mate !!'
