News April & May 2018
Flu vaccinations are usually available from late March or early April each year, depending upon the availability of the annual national vaccine stocks. It is recommended that most people have an annual flu vaccination as the strains of flu are often changing and annual vaccines are targeted to the most common occurring strains.
The flu vaccine is free under the National Immunisation Program for people aged 65 years or over, ATSI people under 5 years of age or over 15 years of age, pregnant women, and people with an eligible chronic disease (such as asthma or diabetes) that can lead to complications from influenza. For further information, please speak to our reception team.
Every effort is made to keep our appointments running to time, however, due to the unpredictable nature of our work this is not always possible. Patients are encouraged to contact us prior to an appointment to check that the schedule is running to time.
Please be aware that if you are running late, and our schedule is running to time, you may be required to re-book your appointment for another time.
Patients who fail to attend for a scheduled appointment without notifying reception, will be charged a non-attendance fee. This fee will be payable prior to booking another appointment.
