Medics Flock to Flu Vaccines

95

Medical practitioners have been rushing to get the flu vaccines being offered by the Ministry of Health.

Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton says nearly all the 5-thousand vaccines brought in so far, have been used.

This, compared to previous years when most doctors and nurses would shun the vaccines.

So far, two doctors have died from the H1N1 virus this year.

The traditional flu season runs from September to April.

However, Dr. Tufton is encouraging the public to remain vigilant even after the season is finished.

And the Health Minister says he and his team will take to the road to further educate the public about the H1N1 virus.
