RSV = respiratory syncytial virus

No vaccine for it in Australia.

Bronchiolitis is caused by a viral infection, usually the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
RSV is very common and spreads easily in coughs and sneezes, almost all children have had it by the time they're 2.
There is no preventative vaccine for it in the U.K. …..yet..

Over the last year with the cases rising, the CDC recommended to those over 65. Up until two years ago I had not heard of it. Got my shot last week.

nasty illnesses, both colds and flus, and other related things.....

Some are getting the jabs and vaccines, others don't plan to.

Getting mine soon...

RSV shots are available across Canada and recommended for older ‘vulnerable’ adults, over 60/65…each Province appears to be different as far as cost … some are offered free, some are not…
