Influenza vaccinations are. Please ring to arrange an appointment in our vaccination clinics.
NSW Health is providing the flu vaccines free to all adults and children over 6 months age in June via your GP.
The following people are more at risk of complications from influenza and are eligible for annual influenza vaccination free under the National Immunisation Program:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
- Children aged 6 months to under 5 years
- Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy
- People aged 65 years or over.
- People aged 6 months or over who have medical conditions that mean they have a higher risk of getting serious disease:
- cardiac disease
- chronic respiratory conditions
- chronic neurological conditions
- immunocompromising conditions
- diabetes and other metabolic disorders
- renal disease
- haematological disorders
- children aged six months to 10 years on long term aspirin therapy.
Children under nine years receiving their influenza vaccination for the first time require two doses of vaccine, spaced by a minimum of one month.
People who are not eligible for a free vaccine can purchase the vaccine from the Cottage Surgery.
Process: We have flu vaccination clinics, but if you are unable to attend one of these clinics, our staff may be able to book you into a nurse appointment for the vaccination.
