If you are over 65 you qualify for a free (higher dose and not generally available at pharmacies) flu needle.
Flu needles this year are encouraged for children aged 6months to 5yrs old (free). Older children may still have the flu needle but it is not government funded.
Please note that due to the Coronavirus pandemic social distancing rules this year we will be trialling a walk-though flu-clinic on our front verandah to minimise waiting room exposure.
An additional needle, the Pneumonia vaccine (pneumovax 23) can be given to those aged over 65, or younger patients with serious chronic health conditions. Please enquire about this with our nurse if you have not had this within the last 5 years. Please note that you can only ever have two Pneumovax injections over a lifetime.
