Flu Vaccines at Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice



As flu season approaches, Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice is dedicated to safeguarding our community's health. We proudly offer comprehensive flu vaccination services for the 2024 season, including both government and private options.

 

Government Vaccines: Under the Australian Government's National Immunisation Program (NIP), certain groups are eligible for free flu vaccines, including:

 

  • Children aged 6 months to less than 5 years

  • Individuals aged 65 and over

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals

  • Individuals who are pregnant

  • Individuals with specific medical conditions*

 

 

Private Vaccines: For individuals not eligible for the government vaccine, Summers Avenue offers the private flu vaccine at a nominal fee of $25. This option provides accessibility and convenience for those seeking protection against the flu.

 

Vaccination remains the most effective defence against influenza, a contagious viral infection associated with severe illness and complications. By getting vaccinated, you not only protect yourself but also contribute to community immunity, reducing the spread of influenza and its impact on vulnerable populations.

 

Appointments for Flu vaccinations can be booked over the phone or in person. These bookings are not available through HotDoc. For more information or to schedule your vaccination appointment, please contact our friendly team.

 

Stay safe and protected with Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice.

 

 

*Please see you doctor to see if your medical condition qualifies you for the free vaccine.
