An insurance company has warned 1,000 GPs not to administer the swine flu vaccine.
The HSE plans to enlist family doctors to give the swine flu vaccine to patients with pre-existing medical conditions.
But an insurance company which covers around 1,000 of the 2,200 to 2,500 GPs in the country advised them not to sign up for the work because of legal indemnity issues.
The HSE has given GPs until today to sign up to give the vaccine to 400,000 of their patients with certain medical conditions from next week.
Medisec Ireland, which covers around 1,000 GPs, told their members yesterday not to sign up until all indemnity issues were resolved.
