GP practices told to order child nasal flu vaccines one week at a time

Comment

There is crass stupifity, and then there is NHS laughable nonsense! GPs are not going to order flu jabs weekly : they ordered what was needed months ago, and still waiting for it; vaccination season ends tomorrow; 4-10 year olds do NOT have a choice to present to GPs - we were told they would be done at school, and we did not order any supplies for them! we can't give injections instead because : 1-it would waste their nasal dose when it later arrives; 2-we don't have any; 3-we did not order enough to have spares; 4-why should we pay extra for a DoH mess-up? Heads should be rolling at DoH over this farce of a vaccination programme - why does the CqC not visit them????
