Row over 'unclean' flu drug
A row has broken out over a flu vaccination spray aimed at children which Muslim parents say they cannot use because it contains pig- derived products.
Fluenz is a nasal spray which contains a weakened version of the flu virus that helps prepare the body to defend itself against the virus.
The solution contains a highly processed form of gelatin, a pork product which Muslims consider unclean and forbidden.
