    Germ detectors used to boost NSW flu jabs
    10:58AM March 13, 2018

    Germ detectors will be located at shopping centres and train stations across Sydney and NSW in an effort to scare people into getting their flu jab early.

    More than 650 people across the state died from influenza last year, prompting the new NSW government influenza strategy.

    The UV germ detectors will allow people to see how clean their hands are.

    NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard on Tuesday said the government would spend $22.75 million on immunisation programs in 2017/18, including free flu shots for children up to five years old.

    Just heard on radio, flu shots will be compulsory for staff in hospitals especially neo natal wards.
