Go to GP for flu: Snowball
BUNBURY people who think they may have the flu have been urged to visit their GP before attending the Bunbury Regional Hospital’s emergency department.
The department of health has reported that more than 6500 people across the state attended an emergency department last month, which is about 2000 more than the same time last year.
Department director general Kim Snowball said this represented a very early start to the flu season.
Mr Snowball said vaccination still offered the best protection against the flu and there was still time to get vaccinated for this year’s flu strains.
