PA­TIENT ANGER AT SHORT­AGE OF VAC­CINE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of pa­tients who lined up for their free flu jabs last week were turned away be­cause the in­fluenza vac­cines had not been de­liv­ered by the govern­ment.

Dr Brad Frankum, NSW pres­i­dent of the Aus­tralian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, said the govern­ment needed to step up be­cause there had al­ready been in­fluenza cases in NSW.

NSW Health’s Dr Vicky Shep­peard said there was no short­age, in­stead dis­tri­bu­tion was the is­sue: “We are an­tic­i­pat­ing com­plet­ing the pre-or­ders by next week.”
