'If you knew about flu you'd get the jab' is the message of this year's flu campaign aimed at the over 65s and parents of children aged over six months with asthma, diabetes or weakened immunity due to disease or treatment. These groups in particular should make an appointment with their GP for their free annual flu jab advises Chief Medical Officer Liam Donaldson.
Flu is highly infectious. A sneeze can carry the flu virus and, travelling at 80 miles per hour, reach distances of up to 30 feet away. Touching objects such as toys that have been coughed or sneezed on can also pass on flu.

Have any of you heard anything like this also? I was wondering if it is regional or just local. Also any UK members can you get a flu shot?
