Impact of flu vaccine opt-out is being seen as A(H1N1) returns to Europe

The Medical News: "As the UK and a number of European countries are now experiencing epidemics of influenza, including A(H1N1) which was the 2009 pandemic virus, the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) warns that the consequences of non-vaccination could emerge as a new flu emergency and are calling for greater efforts to encourage vaccination, not only for at risk groups but also health care workers."

Comment: It's not too late to get your annual flu vaccination.
