The flu season…

If you are considered high risk, having a vaccination against influenza (flu) is now the standard of care in Australia. If you are in the following groups you are eligible for a free flu vaccination:

  • People aged 6 months and over with medical conditions which may mean they are vulnerable to severe influenza (flu)
  • cardiac disease
  • chronic respiratory conditions
  • other chronic illnesses requiring regular medical follow up or hospitalisation in the previous year (2016)
  • chronic neurological conditions that impact on respiratory function
  • impaired immunity,
  • children aged 6 months to 10 years on long term aspirin therapy
  • All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) children aged 6 months to under 5 years and ATSI people aged 15 years and over.
  • All pregnant women
  • All people aged 65 years and over

We encourage you to discuss your health and flu vaccination with your doctor. To help manage the high demand, we conduct seasonal flu vaccination clinics – our reception team can assist you with your booking.
