  • [01] Minister's briefing on 'new flu'

  • [01] Minister's briefing on 'new flu'

    Health Minister Avramopoulos on Wednesday briefed a relevant Parliament committee in Athens over the government's action plan to deal with whatever outbreaks and repercussions of "new flu" or novel influenza.

    Avramopoulos said a major cache of vaccinations will be delivered to Greece in mid September, with the vaccination of "at risk" groups of the general population beginning thereafter. In echoing statements by the scientific community worldwide, the minister also said it was unlikely that the entire population will need to get vaccinated.

    In turning to the "political angle", Avramopoulos, a former Athens mayor, lambasted main opposition PASOK, dismissing the latter's criticism of the government and referring to an effort at "petty political exploitation" of the flu scare.
