(Corrected Times – thanks R.D)

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.

We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.

You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:

  • over 65 years of age
  • pregnant
  • or have:
    • a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
    • serious kidney disease
    • diabetes
    • lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
    • if you have ever had a stroke

Unfortunately, nasal spray vaccinations will NOT be available at flu clinics this year.  We will contact those eligible once our delivery arrives to arrange an appointment.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.  Thank you.
