Flu season is almost here, and the SCOTS PGC College wants to keep your children and the adults who care for them healthy.
Influenza (the ‘flu) is an infectious disease caused by a virus. When children are in a group with other children such as in schools, the transfer of infectious diseases can become more problematic. Influenza is one of the most common vaccines preventable causes of hospitalisation.
Queensland Health recommends the best way to protect against influenza is to get vaccinated each year. More information can be found at the following link: http://conditions.health.qld.gov.au/HealthCondition/condition/14/217/82/influenza-the-flu.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the SCOTS PGC Health Centre on 07 4666 9803 Monday through until Friday 8 am – 3 pm.
