GPs warned to be careful when giving flu vaccine to Muslim patients
by Helena Blackstone
GPs will be advised to take care when immunising Muslim patients with a pork-derived influenza vaccine.
NHS England has issued information to CCG clinical leads, to be disseminated to GPs, that some groups within the British Muslim community might consider the Fluenz vaccine forbidden.
The Fluenz vaccine is being offered to two to four-year-olds to protect against severe complications of flu.
