Flu vaccines 2021

Flu season is yet again on its way, and vaccines are available now. Though it is early in the season, vaccinations this year will be complicated by the Covid-19 vaccine roll out, so it may be easier to get vaccinated for flu as early as possible. If you have any concerns about timing, please book an appointment to discuss and make a plan with your doctor. The following special groups are eligible for the government funded vaccine; children aged 6 months – 5 years; seniors over 65 years; anyone with a chronic health condition; all ATSI people and; pregnant women.
