Swine flu jab for UK children

29th September 2009

Over the course of the next fortnight, 1,000 children in England are to be given a vaccine to immunise them against the swine flu virus. 

The children, aged between six months and 12 years, will come from London, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Oxford. As part of a clinical trial, doctors will compare vaccines made by two different companies in order to see which one is most effective and has the least side-effects.
