GPs are unable to offer vaccination against Japanese encephalitis virus to patients displaced by the SA floods, because of strict state government criteria around which practices can get stocks. 

Immunisation Coalition chair and GP Dr Rod Pearce said patients from the flooded Riverland region who fled their homes had started presenting to his practice in east Adelaide.
