People in high risk groups, such as the over 65s and pregnant women, are being urged to get vaccinated against flu. The appeal from health authorities comes as the number of reported cases of influenza-like illness (ILI) nationally has increased in the past week.
The HSE and Department of Health announced that the swine flu vaccination programme will commence on November 2. As very few people in Ireland have any immunity to swine flu, over the coming months, the HSE will offer a swine flu vaccine to the entire population.
