Flu information from The Travel Clinic Ltd, Ipswich and Cambridge

Flu viruses change or evolve throughout the year, so the World Health Organization makes their recommendations on what viruses the research shows will be prevalent  globally.

A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)-like virus;
— an A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)-like virus;
— a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus.

Are contained in this year’s vaccine now available from  The Travel Clinic in Cambridge and Ipswich

Worldwide, H1N1 remains most intense in parts of India, particularly New Zealand and also in Australia.

As the virus evolves the flu vaccine is only current for one year, meaning all those who have been vaccinated aginst flu or swine flu in the last year should be vaccinated again for protection against this years flu strains.

It is anticipated that with the large influx of students from all over the world swine flu may become an issue for us all in East Anglia.

It is recommended that all travellers should have a flu vaccine prior to their trips, whether it is for work or pleasure.
