Warning for people to get swine flu jab25th January 2010
The Chief Medical Officer for England has released a bulletin which shows that the number of swine flu cases in England and Wales have decreased.
Over the Christmas period cases fell to the lowest levels since the start of the outbreak, but Sir Liam Donaldson urged people to be vaccinated. "Levels of pandemic flu are currently very low virtually concluding the second wave of the infection in this country. When the virus returns in the 2010 flu season those who develop complications or die will be doing so from a vaccine preventable disease. I strongly advise that those eligible for the vaccine who have not yet had it, get the jab and protect themselves," he said.
