FLU VACCINE CLINICS – fully booked – but more on way

Our next flu clinics will open again just as soon we hear from the Department of Health about our next vaccine delivery date – stay tuned here on our site for the latest info – please do not call.  We will notify those of you most at risk from flu by text message – we encourage you to book online here on our site.

Each flu season, we give over 3,000 flu vaccinations to our patients however, the quantity and at times, the availability of the influenza vaccines is out of our control.  This is why our first Flu Vaccine Clinics are now reserved for priority patients.

As we receive our Dept. of Health vaccines, we are running three concurrent Flu Vaccine Clinics most weekdays to both manage the demand and minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection via social distancing at the clinic.

Step 1:   You must please check your eligibility to receive a free government flu vaccination

Step 2:  Please book your flu vaccination online – this helps to manage demand

Coronavirus – what you need to know

We all need to work together to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. To protect those most at risk and to slow the rate of community transmission – non-essential organised gatherings should be kept to fewer than 500 people. 

People who have returned from anywhere overseas are required to self-isolate for 14 days. During this time, you should monitor your health closely. If you develop symptoms including a fever and cough, you should seek medical attention, remembering to call ahead.

People who have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus should also monitor their health and seek medical advice.

From 18 March 2020, all Australians are advised not to travel overseas. Go to www.smartraveller.gov.au for further information
