The flu (influenza) is a viral infection that is easily spread from person to person. Flu symptoms such as fever, chills, sore throat, headaches and muscle and joint pain can put normally healthy people out of action for up to a week or more. The flu is a serious condition with symptoms being debilitating and potentially life threatening.
Your best protection against this illness is to get vaccinated. Getting the Flu Shot early in the year, before the height of flu season can result in a drastically reduced risk of becoming infected and spreading the virus to others. Book your Flu Shot appointment today at your local Chemist Warehouse to be vaccinated by one of our qualified GPs or trained Nurse Practitioners and “Arm Up” against the flu!
Any patient wanting to make a booking without a valid Medicare card will need to contact their preferred location and must pay an additional $10 fee.
The Flu Vaccine that we are using in our program is the 2015 Trivalent form of the vaccine. If you have any questions about the Quadrivalent form of the vaccine, please contact your GP or ask your local pharmacist.
