No Scarcity of Flu Vaccines This Season

People need not be afraid of the shortage of vaccines this year and thus should not worry about the attack of flu, as under the new guidelines formulated by Federal Health there would be adequate availability of flu vaccines.

Last year, the inventory of flu vaccines fell short due to the menace of H1N1 virus and the obstruction created by the makers of vaccines. But, there is no such problem this season and vaccines have already been supplied to healthcare centers, including doctors and retail health clinics.

Robots are fast replacing human space as in case of a $444m Forth Valley Royal hospital opening in Scotland.

These robots will supposedly be made in-charge of the more menial duties of ward-workers, including bringing meals and dispensing drugs.
