Flu shot just as vital as COVID-19 jab
With the world focused on preventing COVID-19 infections many of us have forgotten about the flu virus.
Medical experts warn that we should not disregard the dangers of influenza.
More than half a million people die of the flu every year.
In South Africa, specifically, we see almost 50 000 cases and 12 000 deaths annually as a result of the flu.
Dr Jo Barnes from Stellenbosch University's Faculty of Medicine has urged people to get their flu jabs.
