Facts about Flu

  • You cannot get the flu from the flu vaccination

Flu can be a serious illness

Influenza, commonly called the flu, can be a serious illness that is sometimes fatal. Infection with the flu virus may lead to a stay in hospital for any age group but particularly if you are elderly or have an ongoing medical condition. Flu can make an existing medical condition, such as asthma or diabetes, a lot worse. Those with heart conditions can become more likely to have a cardiac event if they contract the flu.
