NSW Health's director of communicable diseases, Vicky Sheppeard, said it's important for older people to make sure they've had their shots.

"As older people are particularly susceptible to contracting the flu, it's important they have the vaccination every year to reduce the risk of hospitalisation and death," Sheppeard said.
She also urged pregnant women to have the flu shot.
"Pregnant women who get influenza are at greater risk of developing serious complications, such as pneumonia, which may result in their hospitalisation," she said.

Dr Vicky Sheppeard, Director of Communicable Diseases at NSW Health said that measles is highly contagious among people who are not fully immunised.

"Measles is highly infectious and is spread through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms can include fever, tiredness, runny nose, cough and sore red eyes which usually last for several days before a red, blotchy rash appears. Complications can range from an ear infection and diarrhoea to pneumonia or swelling of the brain," Dr Sheppeard said.
She advised that the three young men (aged 25 - 35 years) have recently spent time in Earlwood, Hurlstone Park, Alexandria and Waterloo, while potentially infectious with measles. The men also visited local medical centres in Rozelle, Croydon, Rockdale as well as the Royal Prince Alfred Emergency Department while infectious during the past week.
The time from exposure to the onset of symptoms is typically around 10 days but can be as long as 21 days, so there may be other cases in the community now or people who will be developing symptoms over the next few weeks.
Dr Sheppeard advised parents of infants or other people who aren't fully vaccinated against measles to be on the lookout for symptoms of measles.
"If symptoms develop please phone ahead when seeking medical attention to ensure you don't share the waiting area with other patients," Dr Sheppeard said.

Dr Vicky Sheppeard, director of communicable diseases at NSW Health, said in a statement the cases were confirmed on Friday, but added that it is "very unlikely" the infection will spread locally.

"It is very unlikely that Zika virus established local transmission in NSW as the mosquitoes that spread the infection are not established here - although they are found in some parts of Queensland," Dr Sheppeard said.
