Not Too Late To Protect Yourself Against The Flu

As they say - "it's going around"..

Might be a little late this year, but the flu season has well and truly hit... and the message from AMAQ is - it's not too late to get your flu vaccination and protect yourself against the latest strain of flu's.

This morning, I spoke with AMAQ President Dr Bill Boyd who told us you don't get the full effect of the vaccine if you get it this late in the season - but it is still worthwhile.

Dr Boyd told us the strains of flu this year are similar to the kinds that we experience every year - there is nothing particularly different this year... in saying that, all flu's can cause serious issues.

The main message from the AMAQ President was to see you GP, ask about getting a flu shot, and remember to prepare early for the flu season next year.
