Headline

GPs to be funded to order two types of flu vaccines for next winter

Comment

Because of my cynical (!) nature I suspect that there are insidious reasons for the potential ‘flu vaccine shortage. 1) If people die as the result of contracting influenza because they hadn’t been vaccinated then it is a cost saving to the NHS because they aren’t here anymore to get the treatments for all their other pathologies! 2) If such people do survive ‘flu then we will have told them there is no treatment (cost saving) and anyway Tamiflu etc makes no difference/doesn’t work! 3) For those that need hospital admission they can’t have that as there are no beds available! Job done!
