How to protect yourself
General measures: Good hand hygiene. Avoid congested places and work from home if possible. Wipe surfaces that you use regularly. Do not touch your face, mouth or eyes. Wear a mask if you have a cough, cold, runny nose etc. No handshakes for this time
Additional measures that doctors advise you to do early:
- Obtain the flu vaccine as soon as possible. Do it as a family to protect the at-risk members in your family and community
Flu affects many of us in the colder months and only some people are eligible for a funded flu vaccine. This year more than any other year it is very important that everyone gets the flu vaccinated. If you develop flu and coronavirus together you will get very sick very quickly.
- Patients with Respiratory issues and low immunity please obtain pneumococci vaccine
Following a viral infection, it is common for at-risk groups to develop pneumonia. This vaccine will protect you from the commonest bacteria that can cause pneumonia in our community
- If you a have a new-born
It is very important your whole family gets vaccinated for whooping cough before you see the new-born.
