Whooping cough is highly contagious, doesn’t have a cure and causes fatalities in one in every 200 babies who contract the disease. Vaccination is recommended to all adults who are or will be in close contact with babies including expectant parents, grandparents, childcare workers and healthcare workers.
Each year, influenza or “the flu”, affects thousands of Queenslanders and in some cases, can result in hospitalisation. As the weather cools and flu season approaches, don’t forget, protection is as simple as a trip to Manly Village Pharmacy.
