ABOUT 28 people visited Launceston’s flu clinic at the Silverdome yesterday as the number of confirmed cases of swine flu sits on 10 statewide.Tasmania has one case of the virus in the South, two in the North and seven in the North West, with no new probable cases overnight.Meanwhile, a 59-year-old woman from Tasmania who travelled to Brisbane from Hobart via Melbourne has been confirmed with the virus in Queensland.Tasmanian flu clinics will be open seven days a week between 10m and 4pm.Public Health acting director Chrissie Pickin said planning for the new centres proved invaluable. “However, improvements will continue to be made as the response rolls out,” Dr Pickin said.She said the small numbers of people attended the clinics during the first day’s operation.In Burnie approximately 15 people attended the clinic, while 20 used the Devonport service and 27 people turned up at the Hobart clinics.Call 1800 FLU DOC (1800 358 362) if you have flu symptoms and have travelled to Victoria, Mexico, US or Canada in the last seven days or if you have been in contact with someone who is suspected or confirmed to have swine flu in the last seven days. Please phone 1800 FLU DOC before going to your local emergency department, pharmacy, GP or flu clinic, Dr Pickin said.
