Children trial swine flu vaccine

Source: Press Association

"Children in London have started receiving a swine flu vaccine as part of a new trial.

Researchers are hoping to use around 1,000 youngsters over the next fortnight to see which of two different drugs performs the best.

The children, aged six months to 12 years, are being recruited in Bristol, Oxford, Southampton, Exeter and London."

Interesting choice of words: "new trial" and "use around 1,000..." and "...to see which of two different drugs perform the best". I could be wrong but to me that smacks of using our children as guinea pigs on untested vaccines.
