FLU VACCINE WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM MARCH
The government funded seasonal flu vaccine is now available for those who are eligible.
Pregnant women, anyone over the age of 65 years, indigenous Australians and Torres Straight Islanders aged 15-64, and anyone at risk of severe outcomes from seasonal flu (like those with heart disease, lung problems, asthma, kidney disease, diabetes and poor immunity) are eligible.
Please note a consultation fee for providing the vaccine still applies.People who are unwell with influenza should always isolate themselves from others by staying away from gatherings and trying to limit the spread of the illness.
People who are vulnerable to serious complications of influenza should ensure they reconsider their attendance at events as contact with large numbers of people can increase the risk of coming into contact with the infection.
