The flu spreads easily. Ideally, you should be vaccinated before the main influenza season in May to September.
Infection with the influenza virus can lead to a stay in hospital for any age group but particularly if you are elderly or have an ongoing medical condition.
By immunising against influenza, you can protect yourself and lessen the chance of bringing it home to a baby, older relative or someone with a medical condition who could develop serious complications from influenza.
Contact Sumner Pharmacy for more information about the range of vaccinations available to keep you and your family protected.
