I was reading up about the outbreak of the Aussie flu in Ireland, or a very virulent strain of Influenza A. Apparently thousands of people in Ireland are coming down with it and are very ill. A&E services and GPs are overloaded with new cases, and the HSE has confirmed multiple deaths directly attributable to this flu.
Experts are saying it could be the worst outbreak of flu since the 1968 Spanish flu pandemic.
The authorities are urging as many people as possible, and especially vulnerable groups who are elderly or have underlying health issues, to get vaccinated. I am seriously thinking of getting vaccinated myself.
Has anyone here got infected or know anyone infected? Have you been vaccinated or do you plan on getting vaccinated?
