Poor Flu Vaccination Coverage

Published onsdag 28 september 2005 kl 12.00

A report carried out for the World Health Organization indicates that Sweden has the second worst record of influenza vaccination in the western countries.

According to the study, in 2003 only 127 persons per thousand were vaccinated here. Only Norway had less coverage at 102 per thousand. That compares to 200 in Britain and 210 in Germany.

The Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control tells the newspaper “Dagens Medicin” that Sweden is poorly prepared for the next epidemic.

There are currently concerns about Avian flu, and more than 20 million people died worldwide in the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic.
