Flu Vaccine service
The Influenza virus also known as the 'flu' is a forever mutating bug that can you leave feeling a little worse for wear. It is important not get it confused with the common cold, which is much less severe then the actual flu.
With both the young and the elderly at severe risk we rely heavily on herd immunity. Vaccines are safe and undergo extensive safety research prior that are made available for use in Australia. Vaccines are tested first in smaller clinical trials before moving onto larger clinical trials on thousands of people before being made available to the general public.
The Flu Vaccine won't give you the Flu Virus
The flu vaccine does not contain the active virus so you cannot catch it. No matter what myths people tell you the vaccine contains dead virus cells so it is impossible to get the disease from it.
Do I need to see my doctor to obtain the vaccine?

A letter will be sent to your doctor notifying them of your vaccination.
