What to do if you're feeling sick


Where should you go for help?

When you’re in Australia, finding the help you need can feel a little confusing at first.

The way you get help in Australia may be different to what you’re used to, so we’ve put together a quick guide to make it easier for you to get the help you need, when you need it.

Give the flu the flick

The flu probably isn’t the first thing you’re thinking of getting vaccinated against this year. But flu and COVID-19 are caused by different viruses, so vaccination against one won’t protect you against the other.

Our flu vaccination takes around two minutes, and you’ll be helping to protect others – as well as yourself. (Don’t forget, flu viruses change each year, so you might not be immune to this year’s strain, even if you were vaccinated last year!).

That’s why the yearly flu shot is always a good idea. But if you’re worried, chat to your doctor or pharmacist first.
