2019 Influenza Vaccinations are now available
Recent evidence suggest that protection following influenza vaccination may begin to wane after three to four months, therefore, timing of vaccination should aim to achieve the highest level of protections during the period of influenza virus circulation (typically from June to September).
If you are aged 65 years and older, pregnant or have a chronic condition, you are eligible for a free influenza vaccination under the Government scheme.
As always, the World Health Organisation have identified the 2019 influenza virus strains and developed age specific vaccines to improve protection to those most at risk.
Remember, vaccination remains the best defence against infectious diseases-
Talk to your doctor or Nurse to find out which vaccination you should consider to protect yourself and those in our community.
Please call the surgery to book into one of our flu clinics.
