Being vaccinated at any time is better than not being vaccinated at all.
Influenza is a major cause of illness in Australia and people die of the flu every year. Some years, the prevailing flu strains are much more severe than others, and this is unpredictable.
2019 is already shaping up to be a bad year for the flu.
The most important weapon against flu and its complications is vaccination. The more people who are vaccinated, the less the flu will spread in the community.
