COVID-19 Vaccine (30.04.2021)

Visit our COVID-19 Vaccine page to find out how to book your vaccination or to find out more about the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Flu Immunisation  (27.04.2021)

While last year’s flu season was mild, it was due to factors such as limited travel, the lockdown, physical distancing and hand hygiene. With people living a relatively ‘normal’ life and travellers returning from overseas, it is important to consider this when deciding whether to have a flu vaccination this year.

The Department of Health is recommending vaccination be given at a time that will achieve the highest level of protection during the peak influenza season. Peak season usually occurs from June to September, and most people will develop immunity within two to three weeks of vaccination. For more information, please visit the Department of Health website.

Private vaccines are available for $14.00. The government-funded vaccines for all age groups are now available. However, ordering limits apply, so please be patient as we deal with supplies. 

In 2021, government-funded influenza vaccines are available to the following groups, due to their increased risk of complications from influenza:

  • People aged 6 months to less than 5 years
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
  • Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)
  • People aged 65 years and over
  • People aged 5 years and over with medical conditions which increase the risk of influenza disease complications
  • Primary school aged children (≥ 5 years to Year 6)

The COVID-19 vaccine is being rolled out around the same time to eligible patients. The Department of Health is recommending eligible patients receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available, and then their influenza vaccine. The recommended minimum interval between a dose of the flu vaccine and a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is 14 days.

More information about the COVID-19 vaccine is available here.
