Flu Vaccination

Antibiotics cannot kill viruses because they have different structures and reproduce in a different way than bacteria. Antibiotics have no effect on viral infections such as the flu.

Examples of viral infections in Singapore include Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTIs) like the flu, Hand, Foot & Mouth Disease (HFMD), among others.

Fact 1: Antibiotics work against bacteria

Antibiotics, such as Penicillin, Doxycycline and Amoxicillin, are medicines used to prevent and treat bacterial infections. They work by destroying or slowing down the growth of bacteria.

Examples of bacterial infections include Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), Bloodstream Infections, Pneumonia, Tuberculosis and Salmonellosis.

Fact 2: The flu cannot be treated with antibiotics

If you find yourself with common symptoms of Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTIs), such as runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, headache, sore throat, cough and mild fever, talk to your doctor for the treatment you need.

Antibiotics should only be taken when they are prescribed to you. Never use or share leftover antibiotics.

As such, antibiotics do not help you to recover faster. Talk to your doctor for the treatment you need. In fact, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTIs) typically resolve on their own within 3-10 days.

Vaccinate Early

Flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone over the age of six months, so even your baby can take a flu jab. In particular, those with a higher risk of flu-related complications, which can include severe and possibly even fatal consequences, would benefit from the protection of flu vaccination.

If,

  • your parents or grandparents are above 65 years old,
  • your wife or family member is pregnant,
  • your children (aged 6 months to 18 years) are receiving long-term aspirin therapy and therefore at risk of developing Reye syndrome after influenza infection,
  • you or someone in your family have chronic illnesses of the lungs, heart, kidney, nerves, liver, blood, or chronic metabolic diseases such as diabetes, or HIV etc.

Get you and your family protected with flu vaccination two weeks before your travels!
