The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) announced yesterday that Hong Kong has officially entered the winter flu season.

If you have the flu, it's important to isolate yourself.

To make matters worse, some pharmacies are dealing with temporary shortages of flu medications, due to demand.

Get vaccinated. The list of reasons to avoid vaccination is short (such as having a severe reaction to the vaccine in the past); and no, the standard injected flu vaccine can not cause you to get the flu.

"It's safe to say that we are now experiencing a flu outbreak and these three voluntarily reported flu-related deaths reflect that", said Chief Epidemiologist Russell Jones.

Meanwhile, the FDOH recommends sick people stay home until fever-free for at least 24 hours and that all people wash their hands frequently.

Cases of the flu were close to epidemic levels at the end of 2017, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Bogoch said the potential weakness in the flu vaccine's ability to protect against the H3N2 strain is an issue this year, noting he's seen early data suggesting it may be only 10 per cent effective. Byrne says, "It's a high fever, usually over a hundred degrees, with a severe headache and body aches, and extreme fatigue that can last up to three weeks; and you could have a cough".
