H1N1 influenza

Advice from the Falls Creek Medical Centre:
The symptoms of Swine Flu are similar to 'ordinary' Flu with fever (38C+), shivers, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough and general muscle aches. At present it appears that healthy individuals infected with Swine Flu experience relatively mild symptoms and recover quickly.

Influenza vaccination will not protect against Swine Flu or the common cold but will protect against other influenza infections expected this winter. A vaccine against Swine Flu may be available in the future.
We are obviously keen to avoid this contagion infecting the lodge. If you contract H1N1 influenza prior to the period of your booking, please contact the Booking Officer to discuss some options.
