Flu Vaccination news

The Flu season this year is very likely to be different to last years-that is the most likely prediction. Getting vaccinated should remain a priority. The best time to get vaccinated is in late April/early May as this will provide the best protection for most of the normal flu season

The clinic previously advertised for the 17th April is full and we are now accepting bookings for Saturday the 24thApril.

This clinic will be for all patients over the age of 65, remembering that many of our over 75 year olds will be vaccinated against COVID by then and will have an alternative date given for their flu vax (to ensure at least 2 weeks between the different vaccinations).

We are only taking bookings for this one day at this stage and, unlike last year, there will be no text reminders. We are not keeping a waiting list at the clinic. If you cannot make the 24th do not worry. There will be plenty of others which will be soon advertised.

The Clinic will be in the same format as last year-a drive-through clinic set in front of the Foster Secondary College Gymnasium (Pioneer St Foster) in the bus turning lane (with entry from the Hoddle end).
