Thursday 7 September 2017 Mr McCURDY (Ovens Valley) My constituency question is for the Minister for Health.
Today's Herald Sun has an article about Ben Ihlow, who died from the flu, as the epidemic continues throughout Victoria.
This follows on from news of eight people who sadly died from the flu in recent weeks at Wangaratta's St John's Village.
I seek clarification from the minister as to what steps are being taken to ensure that other families throughout Victoria do not suffer similar outcomes.
Obviously our communities need better education around the times of the flu injection, costs of the flu injection and preventing the spread of flu, and we need to seek clarification about what other important ways there are to prevent the spread of this deadly flu.
