Tamiflu, a prescriptive drug
used to treat the H1N1 influenza
or the seasonal flu, is running
out at the nation s hospitals.
Relatives of patients who are
being treated for the influenza are
also finding it difficult to get the
drugs at private pharmacies. Tam-
iflu is used to treat the flu (influen-
za) in people two weeks of age and
In an interview yesterday, Chan
Sookoo, whose relative is being
treated at the San Fernando Gen-
eral Hospital, said he checked sev-
eral pharmacies for the drug but
was unable to get any.
"Why is it the doctors are pre-
scribing this if it is not available?"
Relatives of a Point Fortin secu-
rity officer currently warded at the
Intensive Care Unit also said it
was difficult getting the drug.
"We checked in pharmacies
throughout Debe, Duncan Village,
San Fernando and Marabella and
we could not get it. Eventually we
managed to get ten tablets at a
pharmacy in La Romaine," a rel-

to get the season influenza vacci-
nation which is taken as a pre-
caution in the prevention of swine

rence Deyalsingh assured that there
was no shortage of the H1N1 vac-
cination. The virus has resulted in

those who have had direct contact
with ailing patients should get the

Guardian revealed that more than
half a dozen public health centres
remain without vaccination sup-
plies. These include the Penal, Ica-
cos, Fyzabad, Freeport, Indian
Walk, Gasparillo and Pleasantville
health centres. Officials from other
centres have been giving the vac-
cinations at specific times.
A source at the Erin Health
Centre said the vaccine can be
obtained on Thursday at 11 am.
Officials at Palo Seco said the vac-
cination was not available to the
"We don t have the amount that
we ordered so we are trying to
vaccinate the staff first. We have
ordered but we are told it is in
short supply," an official said.
A staff member at the Guapo Health
Centre said vaccinations were brought
for the staff members alone. However,
another batch was expected to be
delivered by the end of the month.
Fyzabad Health Centre officials said
they do not know when they will get
the vaccination. La Brea Health Centre
officials said they usually administer
vaccinations to members of the public
from 10.30 am on Wednesdays, while
Macoya and Penal Health Centre offi-
cials said vaccinations are given at 1
pm and 2.30 pm on Wednesdays.
Arouca and Brother s Road Health cen-
tres also confirmed that vaccinations
are given on Mondays.

confirmed death from the highly con-
tagious H1N1 Influenza (swine flu),

deaths worldwide in 2009. The latest
death was that of Siparia mother Cher-
rie Ryce, 46, who died at the San Fer-
nando General Hospital in October 17.

executive officer of the South

vaccination was available at San

be brought into T&T as required.

A senior ministry source said
