The Government's plans to encourage NHS trusts to ensure three quarters of their workers are vaccinated from the flu "is a very welcome initiative", a lung and heart expert has told Daybreak.
Professor Peter Openshaw, director of the Centre for Respiratory Infection, welcomed plans to encourage NHS trusts to make sure their workers are properly immunised by allowing them access to some of the £250 million funding.
NHS trusts that fail to prove at least 75% of their workers have had the jab will be blackballed from emergency funding.
