From Australia. Hi gang. Been a while.

This flu season was insanely brutal. Many had two flus back to back. People we know of die... very scary. I don't know exactly what went on. I've been out of the medical loop for a while, but i suspect there were two strains doing the rounds at exactly the same time.

People in our office were vaccinated weeks before and still got the flu. My mother in law had the vaccine and said she had the worst flu ever... she was hit very hard

nasal spray great advice Kiwimum cheers

Hey Albert why the 4? Is it because the aussie flu season or another reason?

I take the flu shot every year. Use the saline nose spray all winter...I have less sinus infections, even with my little germy students!

Zink, Zink, Zink! I keep Zink lozenges with me at home and work. If I feel any sickness coming on I start on the Zink 4 times or more a day. It works! When I don't do this I get really sick.

I have acquired pneumonia when I get a bad sinus infection and have gotten it twice that way. I get the flu shot because I know I will most likely get pneumonia if I ever get the flu. I really try to stay well, I am an old lady and would like to live a little longer.

Like I have always said we need a pandemic...too many people. I just pray that my son survives, I will go willingly if I my son lives. Know it does not work that way... just wishful thinking.

I have always said on this forum we need to get rid of a bunch of people from this world.

That's what I like about a pandemic,it would be indiscriminate,interesting to note and I stand to be corrected, in the Black plague,the people that survived where mostly O+ blood type, I am so that's ok by me 😂

The infection is not yet a Pandemic although it could become one. I was posting this long before this announcement by WHO who also announced one in 2009. The key issue is what can be done to stop this now.

That is something no one has talked about and I will.

its been bad here ,and once it gets up into the northern hemisphere at this time of the year it could be 

called a pandemic in the end ,and as JohnL,said its all to do with how the vaccine is produced ,this 

years vaccine is not up to it, as the Virus has evolved/mutated  in the eggs

so we cant stop it ,and never will.........

 thats why i have been facinated by viruses since i was at Highschool in the 70s
