The flu (influenza) is caused by a viral infection that is easily spread from person to person. The flu is a serious condition, and complications arising from the flu can be debilitating and potentially life threatening. Symptoms of the flu include fever, muscle and joint pains, chills, sore throat and headaches. These symptoms can last 1-2 weeks.
Your best protection against the flu is to get vaccinated. Getting a Flu Shot early in the year, between March and May, before the height of the flu season can result in a drastically reduced risk of becoming infected and spreading the virus to others. Book your Flu Shot appointment today at your local participating Chemist Warehouse to be vaccinated by a qualified health professional and “Arm Yourself” before the flu gets you!
