This is a good year to get a flu shot

Australia is currently fighting a Severe Seasonal Flu outbreak

While I can't speak to whether or not this will effect our flu season, it's a reminder to me that I will get a flu shot this year (forgot last year and paid for it).

The frightening part of this to me is:
Three adults – a 37-year-old Queensland man, a 48-year-old woman from South Australia and a 33-year-old Queensland mother-of-two – have also died after suffering flu-like symptoms.

Fingers crossed that our vaccine infrastructure is up to the task (without giving us a dangerously flawed shot of course).

Good thoughts to my friends down under!
