FLU VACCINES AND CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATIONS

Flu vaccines are provided by the government for certain high risk groups including children under 5 years old, those over 65 years old and people with chronic medical problems at no cost. Private flu vaccines are also available for other people at a cost of $20.

 

Children should continue to attend the practice for their childhood checks and vaccinations.

 

As children are more likely to have asymptomatic coronavirus, and the elderly are more vulnerable to complications of the illness we will be running dedicated clinics (specific days and times) for children/adults and elderly/high risk patients to receive immunisations.

 

Private flu vaccines are currently available and we anticipate government vaccines will arrive in early April.

 

Please call the practice to arrange to have your vaccine.
