Influenza spreads very easily and up to 1 in 5 of us come in contact with influenza every year.
At its worst, influenza can put you in hospital and can even be fatal. In many cases, influenza can keep you in bed for a week or two, and drain your energy keeping you from work, sport or just about anything that requires leaving the house.
For adults and children with long-term health conditions, pregnant women and people aged 65 years and older, influenza can be an especially serious illness. For this reason the influenza immunisation is provided FREE to these groups.Share
