Have you had your flu shot yet?
Southbank residents: as the flu season approaches MyClinic Southbank want to ensure the health and wellbeing of our valued residents.
One of the most effective ways to safeguard yourself and your loved ones from the influenza virus is by getting a flu shot.
Influenza is a respiratory illness that is spread by the droplets when you cough and sneeze. These tiny droplets of fluid are launched into the air and can also land on surfaces; anyone who makes contact with these surfaces can get infected and spread the virus further.
The flu can occur anytime of the year, however, in Australia the flu is more prevalent during the cooler months between April and October, so it is important to get your flu vaccine early.
This vaccination not only reduces the risk of contracting the flu but also lessens the severity and duration of symptoms if infection does occur. By getting your flu shot, you will not only contribute to your own health but also the wellbeing of your community.
