"I am deeply saddened for the family of this young child, who experienced an unthinkable loss", said Health Commissioner Dr. Shereef Elnahal. H3N2, the strain largely responsible for last year's outbreak, has so far been less common than the H1N1 strain.

"While most people will get better themselves from flu, anyone who is concerned about their condition should telephone their GP or an out of hours medical service so they can arrange to be treated in a way that does not put others at risk", he explained. Even if you think you had the flu already, it is possible to get a second infection with a different strain, so immunization can still be beneficial. You can not get the flu from the flu shot, but immunity usually takes about two weeks to develop.
