It's a fantastic idea!

This could be a medical revolution. If over 95% of the population have it, we could be looking at eliminating flu from the country.

Actually we do get around 95% of children innoculated in everything bar MMR. I forget the actual figures (they are in the OECD report, which is in the office). Many European countries fall far short though.

But given the media hype about bird flu, and if the injection doesn't contain anything contraversial, then I think the only barrier to 95% would be supply.

:shock: I would be too but then again, would a doctor have bothered to visit the child at home?

I don't know the statistics here, but I would imagine we have a very high percentage of children vaccinated with the basics because updated vaccines is required for any child to enter into public care or school.  

Even though we pay for it here, a lot of people I know get the yearly flu vaccine.  The company where I worked offered it for free every year, but now I get it at my doctor's office, usually during my annual physical.

Thats nice to know RM.  :)

I have to have 6monthly check-ups, a pain but so very necessary and of course, I have to have the yearly flu jab. I'm not sure if the one-off flu jab will work, it's worth a try but.........


Talking of children's jabs, L could never have the Rubella one (this was before the introduction of the MMR) as she is allergic to rabbits and the vaccine is incubated in rabbits. The school tried everything (including threats) to get her to have it. At one point they tried to give it to her when she had her TB one, luckily she was able to stop it, but I got a letter about her 'attitude' over it. All this despite our doctor writing to the school and the school clinics to state very clearly that on no account must L have the jab the risk was just too high*

When she started working in a pharmacy and then in the local hospital, she came under intense pressure to have the jab. Luckily all her medical records from school still existed and she was able to prove why she can't have it, but for a long time after she was still harrassed over it. Oddly she has never caught Rubella, even off her sister, so this was a problem when she was having H.

I myself never got Rubella until I was 34, which surprised everyone including the doctor!

(* at that time you got sent information about what was in the jab, so I spotted the thing about rabbits, you don't get that information anymore)
