Muslim children could miss out on a free flu vaccine scheme due to it containing pig gelatin
by Antoine Omisore
Muslim children could miss out on a free vaccine being rolled out in primary schools – because it contains pig gelatine.
The nasal vaccine is being offered to pupils in Years 1 and 2 across East Staffordshire as part of a drive to help protect them against seasonal flu.
However, the vaccine contains a processed form of gelatine, which is not acceptable in some faith groups.
