Pork gelatine flu spray concerns
by Priyanka Deladia
A flu vaccination programme in Lancashire has been criticised by some Muslim groups during the latest stage in its roll-out, in Lancashire.
The nasal spray, offered to young children, contains porcine gelatine, an ingredient derived from pork.
Consuming pork is considered haram or forbidden in Islam, making inhaling the vaccine unacceptable.
