Swine Flu (New Flu) Protection

Posted on the 27 February 2011 by Medicineman
Has this New flu thing gotten you worried? Why is everybody talking about it again?
Are you wondering what is Swine influenza (also known as Swine flu or New flu)? Why is swine flu affecting humans? How to get protected from the virus?
Swine flu (New flu) protectionThere are many ways to protect yourself but the right question is probably this: Should you be worried at all?
I guess no doctor will advise you against vaccination, but that doesn't mean you should do it without giving it a second thought. It is definitely worth checking if you fall into one of at-risk groups (see below).
It is recommended you have a flu jab if you:
  • are 65 or over,
  • are pregnant,
  • have a serious medical condition,
  • live in a residential or nursing home,
  • are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill,
  • are a healthcare or social care professional directly involved in patient care,
  • work with poultry.

Some of these higher risk groups do also qualify for a free vaccination. Consult your family doctor for details.
