Can you afford to get the flu?
Did you know that symptoms of the flu generally develop abruptly, within 1 to 3 days after infection? Symptoms may include: fatigue, weakness, high fever, chills/shaking, headache, coughing, reduced appetite and general muscle aches and pain.
This means that is you contract the virus you will most likely be out of action for several days feeling very miserable.
Thousands of Australians are hospitalised each year from influenza (flu) or complications caused by the flu.
The influenza vaccination is an effective way to protect against the virus.
Influenza viruses change every year because the virus has a unique ability to change. This means that even if you had the flu vaccination last year, your body’s immune system might not be able to fight the changed version of the virus this season.
This year the seasonal influenza vaccine includes protection against four strains of influenza.
If you are over 18 years and want to protect against the flu this year, book in for your appointment today.
Cost is $25.00. (Or $15.00 for the service if you qualify under the National Immunisation Program)
