It’s flu shot time folks

Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 2.16.05 PMIt’s that time of year again… flu shots.

The Federal Government will this year fund a vaccine that covers four, rather than the usual three, strains of influenza (the quadrivalent). Getting a Flu Shot early in the year, between March and May, before the height of the flu season can result in a drastically reduced risk of becoming infected and spreading the virus to others.

It’s a good idea for all CF children (and their families, care givers, nannies etc) to get a flu shot. At risk groups can get a free jab as part of the government vaccination program and this is generally available through your hospital or your GP.

Either way, now’s a good time to start thinking about yours.
