Helen Reriti, the Executive Officer of the West Coast Primary Health Organisation, ‘walks the walk, talks the talk’ and now, takes the jab!
As a health professional, Helen knew the advantage for her patients and for her family of ‘Don’t Get It, Don’t Give It’ in relation to the Influenza Virus. Now, the new head of the PHO is still leading the charge to encourage people to get a flu jab early and help prevent the complications the virus can cause.
For some people, notably the over 65’s and those who already have a chronic medical condition, catching the flu can be a matter of life and death. Complications from Flu can be a killer. This year, we believe the Flu season will start much earlier than in past years, so don’t wait to get a jab, get immunised before the flu arrives.
