Increase in Flu Activity

05 February 2016

We are approaching what is considered historically the height of the flu season and national reports are showing an increase in flu activity over the past twfluo weeks.

The Department of Health has issued a letter given permission for antiviral medicines to be prescribed to those patients presenting with flu like symptoms which is always an indicator that flu activity is worsening.

Staff are reminded of the need to protect themselves against the flu as well as patients, family, friends and work colleagues from the flu and the best way of achieving this is to have the flu vaccine. We will continue to offer the vaccine to all staff throughout the first two months of this year and below is a list of local Flu Fighters that can be contacted to facilitate the administration of the vaccine.
