Annual flu vaccine campaign starts Wednesday

Australia's worst flu season on record has been blamed by doctors on a cheap vaccine

The registered nurse has for weeks spent hours pushing a cart around the hospital, vaccinating employees and volunteers against the seasonal flu.

Public health protection assistant director Yves Jalbert said the vaccine is highly recommended for children between the ages of six and 23 months, as well as for people with chronic illness, pregnant women and people aged 60-years-old and above.

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated before the end of October.
