This year Australia experienced its worst ever flu outbreak on record. The global circulation of the virus means that the seriousness of this outbreak could be reflected in the UK over the winter months.

In a country with around one-third of the population of the UK, Australia has already experienced almost 400 flu related deaths.
It is more important than ever for vulnerable people to contact their GP practice and arrange to have a flu vaccination.

-If your child is aged 2 or 3 protect them from flu with a quick and painless nasal flu vaccination - no needles and no pain.

-And, if you're pregnant protect your health and the health of your unborn baby with a flu vaccination.
