Make sure you're protected this flu season
The flu is five times worse than it was this time last year and has already claimed the lives of 26 people, including three children.
Vaccination provides the best protection against flu. For groups at increased risk, the vaccination is free. These groups are:
• All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
• Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
• All people aged 65 years and over
• People aged six months and over with medical conditions which increase the risk of influenza disease complications.
