Why You Should Get The Flu Jab
An Otago University Wellington study has been recently quoted by the Dominion Post showing that more people die after contracting the flu in NZ, than die on the roads.

The flu virus has claimed an estimated average of 401 lives a year from 1990-1998, compared with 290 lives lost on the roads.
