Thanks Michael for the criticism.  That was a major mess-up.  I won't bother

opposite of Jim's headline. UK children have died from influenza, the article
strongly implies, but the national health services, perhaps having low supplies
of vaccine, or under new government mandates mandates to cut costs, have
countermanded  a local decision to provide the vaccines. The cutback is what
has worried parents.
