Many Doctors in Maharashtra India Refuse to Take H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine

It has been a year or so since this blog was mainly focused on the H1N1 "swine flu" pandemic, but that doesn't mean that the H1N1 has left the news. In fact, many countries around the world are now dealing with the same vaccination issues that people here in the United States were dealing with a few months ago. Luckily, there are skeptics of the vaccine all around the world.

Doubting its effectiveness and possible side-effects many doctors in Maharashtra have refused to take the Swine flu vaccine, prompting the State Government to mull over the large stock of vaccines. Doctors and paramedical staff in Government hospitals have refused to take the swine flu vaccine, an official said.

No decision could be reached at in a meeting here recently with Health Department on what to do with the vaccine stock, the official said.
