Flu can be anywhere and your best form of protection is to get a flu shot. Influenza, commonly called the flu, can be a serious illness that is sometimes fatal. Infection with the flu virus may lead to a stay in hospital for any age group but particularly if you are elderly or have an ongoing medical condition. Flu can make an existing medical condition, such as asthma or diabetes, a lot worse.
Flu vaccines are still available for everyone, including children from 3 years.
If you would like to be vaccinated, please phone to make an appointment. Non funded vaccines are $36 each.
Could you get your flu shot FREE?
Pregnant women and people 65 years and older qualify for a FREE flu vaccine. People with chronic or long terms conditions (such as asthma or diabetes) may also be eligible for a FREE flu vaccine.
