What is influenza?
Influenza is caused by a virus that can infect your nose, throat and sometimes your lungs. It spreads easily through coughing, sneezing and close contact. Influenza symptoms include fever, headache, tiredness and muscle aches. These can start suddenly and may last for a week or more.
If you are elderly, you may also experience confusion; children may be irritable and get an upset stomach.
Influenza may occasionally cause severe complications such as pneumonia and making your existing medical conditions worse leading to hospitalisation and even death.
Does the flu shot work?
To protect yourself from influenza, you should get vaccinated every year. The influenza virus is always changing so the influenza vaccine changes too.
The 2021 flu vaccine is recommended for everyone aged 6 months and over. The influenza vaccine does not contain live virus, so you can’t get influenza from the vaccine.
