NI child dies of swine flu

4th November 2010

The Public Health Agency has confirmed that a child diagnosed with swine flu in Northern Ireland has died.

The pupil attended a special needs school in Lurgan and follows the deaths of 20 people from Northern Ireland who died in last year's swine flu outbreak, including a number of children with severe learning difficulties. Children who attend schools for those with severe learning difficulties should receive flu vaccines this year and the PHA has written to their parents and all GPs asking for them to be immunised as soon as possible.
