Swine flu palaver

3 year old girl dies

The mother of a 3 year old girl from Birmingham who died from swine flu has criticised the government for not making the vaccine available to everyone.
Lana Ameen aged 3 died in a Liverpool hospital after being treated at a hospital in Stockport (Greater Manchester).

"She had no health problems that was known and she died 2 days after showing symptoms of swine flu." said her family.
Her mother, Gemma said she wanted the government to change its rules and allow everyone to get the vaccine.

Those currently able to get the vaccine are in "high risk" groups, which include over 65's, pregnant women, and people of any age with health conditions.

Mrs Ameen said: "I don't know how they can say that my child wasn't worth a few pounds worth of vaccine that could ultimately have saved her life and just because she's a healthy child, doesn't mean she can fight it off."

Mrs Ameen is urging people to get the vaccine even if they have to pay for it!
