Flu can be anywhere. Get immunised.
Influenza, commonly called the flu, can be a serious illness that is sometimes fatal. Infection with the influenza virus may lead to a stay in hospital for any age group, but particularly if you are elderly or have an on going medical condition. Influenza can make an existing medical condition, such as asthma or diabetes, a lot worse.
Your best protection against the influenza virus is to get immunised. Protect yourself and the people around you by getting your annual influenza immunisation, just like a million other kiwis do each year.
Immunisation is FREE for many people. Ask your doctor or nurse today about the influenza immunisation.
