HEALTH CENTRE

Influenza (FLU)

Flu season is here, and Marlborough College Malaysia wants to keep your child and the adults who care for them healthy. We have been notified of a confirmed cases of Influenza in the school. To prevent widespread flu in the school, we recommend that your child stay home from school if experiencing flu or cold symptoms.

When children are in a group with other children, they are more likely to get infectious diseases like influenza. Children with certain conditions are at high risk for complications from the flu, but most children who get the flu are healthy. Even one death from the flu is too many – it’s very important for us to work together to protect the children in our care.

Keeping a sick child at home will help minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom. It is recommended everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine each year. You need this season’s influenza vaccine to protect against the influenza viruses most likely to circulate and cause illness this season.

Marlborough College Malaysia works hard to maintain these practices and we spend time teaching the children to do them as well. Please help us by reinforcing good hygiene at home. Thank you in advance for helping this school year be as healthy as possible.
