Doctors urge MPs to take action over flu jab shortage

Doctors have urged MPs to take action over what they say is a worrying shortage of flu jabs.

One of the UK’s biggest suppliers has warned that deliveries of thousands of vaccines in England and Wales will be delayed for up to two weeks because of a lack of lorry drivers.

Scientists say there could be a surge in flu cases this year and it’s vital to get people immunised as soon as possible.
