Influenza is highly contagious, and it can cause serious complications like pneumonia (lung infection) and meningitis (acute inflammation of the linings of the brain). People at higher risk of developing complications are the elderly above 65 years old, children less than 5 years old, patients with chronic medical conditions, and pregnant women.
There are typically two peak influenza periods every year in Singapore - from April to June and around the end of the year. Protect yourself and your family against this notoriously contagious but frequently ignored virus.
The latest flu vaccine is now available at all clinics under Frontier Healthcare Group.
