"Emergency stocks are being released to combat local shortages of flu vaccine as experts said the disease may be peaking.

"Currently GPs order directly from manufacturers the number of doses they estimate will be needed for their patients in the risk groups.
"Officials said that although there should be enough vaccine in the system as a whole, there appeared to be a mismatch between where the stocks were and where the patients who needed it were."
