Health officials in New Zealand are urging people to get vaccinated against the flu before the winter months arrive to help ease the burden on the health system. The flu season has started earlier than usual this year, with two strains not seen in the country in four to five years. People who are very young, very old, or have underlying medical conditions are more vulnerable to the flu and are more likely to be hospitalised. The flu vaccine is available for free to certain groups of people, including those aged 65 years and over, pregnant people, and those with long-term conditions.
