Margaret Bennett, Chief Executive Southern NSW Local Health District says while the flu vaccine won’t combat COVID-19, it will help reduce the severity and spread of flu.
“We’re urging everyone who can be vaccinated to do so and help stop the spread of the infection in the community especially to others more vulnerable, like children and the elderly.
“The flu can lower a person’s immunity and make them susceptible to other illnesses which could make them more susceptible to other illnesses such as COVID-19.”
People aged 65 and over, pregnant women, Aboriginal people and those with high-risk medical conditions can be vaccinated for free by GPs under the National Immunisation Program. There’s also a free free NSW-funded vaccine is available to all children aged six months to five years.
