Flu

What you need to know Flu.

What is Flu?

Flu (Influenza) is an infectious disease which spreads very rapidly through coughs and sneezes of people who are already carrying the virus.

The Flu immunisation gives you good protection from the Flu virus, and lasts for 1 year. Each year, the vaccine is usually available from autumn, and is made from the strain of flu that is expected in the coming winter.

Symptoms

The symptoms of flu will hit you severely and suddenly. They will usually include a high temperature, chills, headaches, and aching muscles. A sore throat will often accompany these symptoms.

Colds are often mistaken for flu, however they are less severe, and often start gradually with a runny nose or sore throat. For some patients, Flu can lead to serious illnesses like bronchitis or pneumonia, and may require hospital treatment. The main purpose of the flu vaccine is to protect those patients who are at risk of developing complications that can result from flu.
