Flu Vaccine

According to statistics, the flu causes an average of 3,500 deaths, approximately 18,000 hospitalisations, and 300,000 GP consultations in Australia each year. Those who have a chronic disease have a 40 times increased risk of death from influenza.

To protect yourself against a flu infection, you need a flu vaccine. Flu vaccines cause your body to develop antibodies that will provide protection against influenza viruses during the upcoming flu season.
