Study urges H2N2 vaccination drive


with all the inherent and still unknown risks of the vaccine, and in light of all the conflicting information, the population of the uk cannot be coerced into accepting vaccination as the law currently stands. hopefully those who have the majority are adult enough to weigh up the risks and benefits to themselves and their contacts and make their own decision. Normally medical personnel should act in an advisory capacity but, in this case, as there are still no clear guidelines on the safety of the different vaccines available or the age groups at risk this is problematic in view of the potential, no matter how small, serious side effects of the vaccines. The causes of Guillaume Barré are unknown but it has been reported to be associated with vaccines and although relatively rare there is a risk and, in the above comment, its appearance just after the administration of travel vaccines indicates a stronger probability.
