Book your flu shot

Linda Flu prevention, Uncategorized

Book in for your flu shot at our Byron Bay clinic to provide your best defence against the flu this winter.

It is important to get your flu vaccine early in the year, before the height of the winter flu season to dramatically reduce the risk of yourself and your family becoming infected. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone from six months of age.

Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious viral condition that is responsible for major outbreaks of respiratory illness in Australia and around the world. Unlike the common cold, influenza can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications such as pneumonia and bronchitis.

The flu vaccine is available for free for the following high risk groups:

  • People aged 65 years and over
  • Pregnant women
  • People with medical conditions such as severe asthma, lung or heart disease, low immunity or diabetes
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait people aged six months to less than five years and 15 years and over
