As the flu season sets in, studies by Monash University researchers have reinforced the need for at-risk groups to have influenza vaccinations.

The two studies were led by Professor Allen Cheng, (Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine), and Associate Professor Tom Kotsimbos (Department of Respiratory Medicine) in association with other researchers who are part of FluCAN (the Influenza Complications Alert Network), a sentinel surveillance program of 17 hospitals operating throughout Australia.
