SO WHAT IS FLU?

Flu is a highly contagious disease that is transmitted through the air and infects people of all ages. It can lead to serious illnesses, such as pneumonia and even death, particularly in the vulnerable and young. Symptoms can last up to several weeks and include high fever, cough, fatigue, chills, sweating, vomiting, and dizziness.

HOW CAN I PREVENT THE FLU?

The flu vaccine is the most effective way of preventing seasonal flu and passing it on to family and friends. But there are some other simple steps you can take such as washing your hands and surfaces regularly, or using a tissue when you sneeze and cough.

CAN THE FLU JAB GIVE ME FLU?

In a word, no. The vaccine contains an inactive form of the virus which your immune system recognises and creates antibodies to fight against flu.
