Young children to be offered swine flu vaccination

20 Nov 09

Children under the age of five are the next in line to get the swine flu vaccine, the government has announced.


The immunisation programme is already well under way, with NHS workers, pregnant women and people with health problems being offered the jab first.


The UK-wide programme will be extended to children aged from six months up to five years from December after a recent rise in serious illnesses. People caring for elderly or disabled people will also be offered the jab.


The move to vaccinate children was widely expected, although some people had suggested there might be a mass schools vaccination campaign.


The Conservatives have already said all under-25s should get the jab next.
