Hypodermic needle used during flu vaccination exercise

Dr Dean Marshall, who's chairman of the BMA's Scottish General Practitioners Committee, was on hand during today's Morning Extra to answer your questions on the swine flu vaccination programme, which is being launched this morning.

I tried to get through as many as your queries as possible, but we were inundated with your calls, texts and emails. Do listen back to see if your question was already answered. If you have any further questions it may be worth visiting the sites below, and if you're still not clear what you should do, then the advice is to contact your GP. But as Dr Marshall told us on today's programme, there's no need to rush or panic as the roll-out will be gradual over the coming weeks. His fear is that people will unnecessarily deluge their GPs' surgeries today with calls.
