More people prone to the flu this year
There are yet more media reports and data to suggest we are in for a flu season much worse than last year with health experts urging people to have a flu vaccination.
Health Direct Australia suggests now is a very good time to be vaccinated. It can take two to three weeks after the vaccination to develop immunity. The flu season in Australia usually runs from June to September, peaking in August.
Health experts are urging people to have a flu vaccination as they warn a killer flu season is on track.
ABC news reported that in March more than 10,000 people were diagnosed with the flu in Australia, compared to 3,171 in March 2018.
Australia had a fairly quiet flu season in 2018 meaning that immunity hasn’t build up to protect against this year’s virus, and can expect more people to be prone to the flu this year. Although we have experienced a mild Autumn so far, experts are predicting a flu season far worse than last year.
We have seen an early take up of our Business Flu vaccinations in light of recent warnings and press about the upcoming flu season.
