New Zealand : South Island warned to brace itself for swine flu

Via TVNZ :

" South Islanders are being warned about complacency over swine flu, as a wave of cases is expected to head their way.

The virus has already caused six deaths around the country, and is implicated in four others, all in the North Island.

But health officials are now telling those in the south to brace themselves for the illness.
Dr Mark Jacobs from the Ministry of Health says this means people who aren't immunised should consider doing so quickly, before the H1N1 virus hits its peak in the south.

"People are nearly running our of time to actually get vaccinated to give themselves protection," he told ONE News. "
