Flu season has officially begun in NSW.
There were 856 confirmed flu cases for the week ending May 12, and 812 cases the previous week, the latest NSW Influenza Surveillance Report shows.
The rate of patients testing positive for influenza has climbed to 10.8 per cent, more than double the 5 per cent threshold that has usually signalled the start of the official flu season.
Flu vaccines are now available from Olympus Health Group at 5 Australia Avenue. Free flu vaccine clinics are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12:00pm – 1:00pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 8:15am-9:00am.
