Flu Vaccines Overview

Influenza or flu vaccines safeguard against the four prevalent flu viruses projected for the upcoming season.

Administered via a needle in the arm, these vaccines offer protection to people of all ages against the flu and associated symptoms. By receiving a flu shot, you’re not only reducing your risk of falling ill with the flu’s often debilitating symptoms but also decreasing the likelihood of severe flu-related complications that can lead to hospitalisation or even being life-threatening.

  • Annual Updates for Best Defense: Flu vaccines are updated yearly to combat the most current strains, providing a tailored shield against seasonal outbreaks.
  • Community Immunity Boost: Getting vaccinated not only protects you but also helps prevent the spread of the flu virus in the community, especially protecting those who are vulnerable or cannot be vaccinated.
  • Essential for Vulnerable Populations: Particularly crucial for seniors, children, and those with chronic conditions, flu vaccines are a key preventative measure in safeguarding susceptible groups.
