The Chief Medical Officer reaches some way back in time to locate an incident that dramatises need for NHS staff to vaccinate :
“What about the 18 patients that died in the winter of 2010 of flu they caught from one of the health workers in their hospital?"
As somebody who follows these issues I cannot recall such an incident being reported, and a web search has not yielded any immediate results, so it would be helpful to have chapter and verse.
