How's the flu season going ?

How’s the flu season going?

I know only the Gods can control it, but is it in full flight yet or is it just lurking in aircraft air-conditioners and elsewhere waiting for fresh-blooded foreigners to arrive ?

Just wondering. Thanks.

if you Google you will see its "Aussie Flu" we are trying to avoid

perhaps the danger is down under and not here in London

As far as I can tell the flu virus is unable to tell the difference between locals and tourists.

As barbexpat says the NHS is currently vaccinating eligible people with a vaccine containing a sequence for a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus you have probably already been exposed to a similar Flu already.

The whole air conditioning spreads colds/flu/etc. thing is a myth.

It's the smallpox you need to worry about.

Gee, LCFCfoxes, now you have given me something to worry about.

And yes we survived the Aussie flu and could have an immunity, we hope.

Phuket Bigdaddy,

Mate, they could get a severe case of Bowler Elbow and it wouldn't alter the result. (!).

Lots of folk sniffling on the #9 bus last Monday.
