A SWINE flu antiviral collection point opened in WGC at 9am today (Thursday).

One of only two centres across the whole of Hertfordshire, the base at Campus West was opened in response to increasing numbers of people being affected.

A special authorisation number is needed before Tamiflu will be given out.

People with swine flu should not attend the centre but send a "flu friend" (a friend/relative who does not have swine flu) to pick up the drugs.
