- Flu is often self-limiting with most people recovering in 2-7 days. However, flu can be severe and can cause serious illness and death, especially in the very young and in the elderly.
- The flu vaccine helps the person’s immune system produce antibodies to the flu virus. The vaccine starts to work within two weeks.
- The most common side-effects and symptoms will be mild (e.g. headache, fever) usually lasting just one day. Your pharmacist will advise you on how to manage any symptoms,
