McCarthy welcomes flu vaccine news but says more clarity needed

Alliance Health Spokesperson Kieran McCarthy MLA has welcomed news that a swine flu vaccination programme will start in Northern Ireland from September but said more clarity is needed on who will receive it.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “While I am pleased that a programme for vaccination will start in September, more clarity is needed on who will receive the vaccine.

“No one should panic but people need to feel assured that there will be enough stocks to go around those who are at most risk.

“It appears that the UK is well prepared on this matter, but public information must continue remain a key priority.”
