The Flu can be a very unpleasant illness, however if you are healthy it is not serious. The Flu vaccine also commonly know as the “Flu jab”, is available as of one of the many consultations we offer.

The Flu is a type of respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. The Flu appears most frequently in the winter to early spring months. It is spread from person to person who are in close contact with each other. It is spread through droplets in the air that fall onto items so frequent hand washing is a crucial way to limit the spread of this virus.
