We are having our annual flu jabs on Monday:-) So roll on OZ.


Could it be that the flu jabs you will receive (wherever you are) are
against different strains of flu than the ones running around Oz at the
moment?

We are in England. No, they are up to date for the last two Brisbane
strains.

Default Brisbane Flu

With my skin I need 50+
It was 37C when we were in Adelaide last March.
The Round the World temperatures published in today's paper was, Sydney,
Fair 23C. Must have hotted up in the afternoon.

That won't matter at all - since in fact there is no flu epidemic in
Australia at the moment.

The 'Brisbane' strain mentioned in the Mail article was a problem in
calendar 2007. There was just the usual minor flu increase in the just
finished 2008 winter (and flu season).

It's 34C in Sydney today. Summer comes hard and early in Australia.

Just be sure you have your SPF 15+ sunscreen.

Planning our second trip to OZ and read in the British media about a
massive Flu outbreak over there. Is it over yet?

Derek.

Sounds like a pommie backpacker who got deported for overstaying their
tourist visa and is now working for the daily mail as a health reporter
(qualifications: must be able to wash hands after going to the toilet).
But they learnt one thing whilst here "Never spoil a good story with the
truth".


It is now an 'epidemic' here.
