expert reaction to the chief medical officer’s recommendation to vaccinate toddlers against flu virus

The UK’s chief medical officer, Prof. Dame Sally Davies, has recommended that toddlers be vaccinated against the influenza virus.

 

Prof. Adam Finn, Professor of Paediatrics, University of Bristol, said:

“We have been using this vaccine in trials for several years so we have a lot of experience – parents like it a lot. I think the main problem is lack of awareness. If they could take the vaccine to nurseries it might kick things off.”
