Flu can be a serious disease causing fever, fatigue, headache, cough, nasal discharge and sneezing. In some cases, severe illness and complications can develop resulting in hospitalisation and/or death.

Flu is caused by a virus that spreads easily from person to person through infected droplets in the air and by hands carrying the virus.

Flu differs from a cold as symptoms such as fever, sore throat and muscle aches develop suddenly and last about a week. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones and the community from flu illness.
