Flu Vaccination

General Info:

  • The Flu is a highly infectious acute respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. It can affect people of all ages with outbreaks occurring almost every year, usually in winter.
  • Flu is often self-limiting with most people recovering in 2-7 days. However, flu can be severe and can cause serious illness and death, especially in the very young and in the elderly.
  • The flu vaccine helps the person’s immune system produce antibodies to the flu virus. The vaccine starts to work within two weeks.

Getting Vaccinated:

  • The most common side-effects and symptoms will be mild (e.g. headache, fever) usually lasting just one day. Your pharmacist will advise you on how to manage any symptoms,
  • The flu virus changes each year this is why a new flu vaccine has to be given each year.
