Flu season has approached and so has the time come for people to start getting themselves the flu vaccinations. Same are the motives of the Auckland health officials, who have already started reminding residents to get their immunizations at the earliest.
Signals alarmed when hospital authorities reported a dozen of cases coming in hospitals of H3N2 virus. Christchurch Hospital’s intensive care unit has admitted all the twelve patients, who have contracted the H3N2 virus and so the officials have declared the onset on the flu season and the time for vaccination doses too.
Reports have also attached sixty more cases, who for the time being have been admitted to an isolated ward in the hospital. Clearing the terrible effects of the approached flu season, Auckland Regional Public Health Service Dr. Richard Hoskins suggested immediate doses and prevention measures to people to fight the flu. He has especially urged elderly people, young children, and pregnant women to stay cautious as they are more prone to all such infectious risks. "It's not too late to get the free immunization if you're eligible, but anybody else can pay for it at their general practitioner or at a few pharmacists around the Auckland region”.
