Flu Vaccine Now Available for Travellers and our Influenza Workplace Program
The flu vaccine arrived early this year, and we are happy to announce that we have fully rolled out our Workplace Influenza Vaccination Program and have the flu vaccine available for travellers in most of our clinics.
Frequent hand washing and getting the flu shot are the best ways to protect yourself from catching the flu. Usually, influenza vaccine offers significant protection to those who are immunised. On average, the overall influenza vaccine effectiveness in preventing illness is typically about 60%. People who get the flu despite being immunised usually have a milder infection for a shorter duration with lower probability of complications than if they had not been immunised.
