Swine Flu Overrated in Gonzo Reporting?
There is a growing reluctance among employees of public health care facilities to get vaccinated against swine flu. A new opinion poll published by the private-operated Skop company reveals that every fourth health care worker refuses to get a swine flu shot, arguing that the threat posed by the illness is widely exaggerated.
The skeptical attitude is mirrored in the general public. According to the poll more than eighty percent of the Swedes regard the media coverage of the swine flu risk as overdone and not objective. Now 65 percent of the citizens are willing to get vaccinated against the H1N1 virus, down from 80 percent a month ago.
