Tackle The Flu Before It Tackles You

Have You Had Your Flu Shot?

Tackle The Flu Before It Tackles You

The Darling Downs Public Health Unit will be wrapping up their flu clinics by visiting schools across the Darling Downs and South Burnett this week.

They have been touring the region administering flu shots as part of their “Tackle the Flu, Before It Tackles You” campaign.

Doctor Penny Hutchinson is putting the call out there for healthy people to get the flu shot if they haven’t already:

“Sometimes the flu vaccine in older people is not as effective so it’s actually vital for those who are around these vulnerable people to get vaccinated because the flu vaccine is more effective in otherwise healthy people so that’s why it is really important for everybody to think about getting the flu shot and particularly indigenous people.
