2019 INFLUENZA SEASON
Influenza is a serious illness that can affect anyone no matter how fit, active and healthy they may be. For many people vaccination is FREE. People who can get a free vaccination are
- Anyone who is aged 65 years and over
- Anyone under 65 years with a chronic medical condition
- Pregnant women
Even if you do not qualify for a free vaccination, it is still a good idea to be vaccinated as Influenza can spread to your family and friends including those who are most at risk of serious complications
So phone the clinic to make an appointment for your vaccination or ask when you are next visiting the clinic for your routine appointment and we can vaccinate you against the Flu at the same time.
