Nurses not getting swine flu jab21st January 2010
The NHS has admitted that only a third of nurses in London have been vaccinated against swine flu.
Details released under a Freedom of Information request submitted by the BBC have shown that the majority of medical staff in the capital remain unprotected against the virus. NHS London insisted the vaccine take-up was "encouraging" and rising, with more than 60,000 staff having had the jab. In addition, 38% of London's GPs and 45% of other doctors, such as hospital consultants, have received the vaccination.
