Flu Virus protection

Everyone around you sniffling and sneezing? Take heart, there’s still time for prevention!

It’s winter and everywhere you look friends and family are coming down with flu symptoms: temperatures, body aches and fatigue. If you’re still feeling good and healthy yourself, great! However, if you want to avoid catching flu yourself, it’s good to know that, even though flu season is in full swing, it’s not too late for the added prevention of a flu jab.

The best way to protect yourself against the flu is to get vaccinated, say health experts. That means getting a flu jab preferably between October and November. Yet there’s time for prevention, even later in the season. The flu season usually peaks in February - though it can spike anywhere from November to May. So a flu jab as late as January can help protect you, and others, from being laid up with flu.
