Killer Flu Is Headed Our Way; Time to Get Your Shot to Protect You from a Virus Expected to Hit in May or June


A KILLER flu is heading toward Australia and tourist towns such as Coffs Harbour are in the firing line.

More than 20 children have already died in the United States from the H2N3 strain of the virus.

Respected doctor Joan Chamberlain expects the flu to hit Sydney and tourists first because of the high population coming through the airport.

aThis yearas flu is going to be different from past years and should hit us around May or June,a she said.

aFor the past two years, flu vaccinations have been similar, but this year is different, this flu is unique.a

Dr Chamberlain said the flu had started in the Northern Hemisphere and slightly changed as it spread around the world.

Di Stanley had been miserable for the past two weeks after catching a dose of the flu but does not know what strain it was.

aI think Iam the victim of an airplane-borne influenza, after my brother came to visit from interstate,a Ms Stanley said.

aIt started off in my tonsils, then progressed to piercing headaches.

aIt felt like an icepick attacking my tonsils, ear drums and head all at once.a

She said she regretted staying at work and battling through the flu.

aI shouldave taken time off work; I obviously couldave infected an entire workplace,a she said.
