Roma, October 26 - A free hotline set up by the
Italian health ministry for information on this season's flu
vaccine was flooded by calls on its first day in operation,
authorities said Friday.
The service received over 1,000 calls in the first three
hours after opening by Italians "mostly seeking advice on which
vaccination should be used for their children and elderly
parents," Giulia Arduino, director of the hotline, said.
So far no calls have been received by citizens who have
been vaccinated with the recently recalled Novartis flu shot,
Arduino said.
On average, 10 to 12 million Italians receive flu shots
annually.
