Influenza – Are you ready?
The 2019 flu season is approaching, are you ready.
The season and severity vary and is unpredictable, but vaccination works, it reduces incidence, severity and complications.
So, who is eligible for the free vaccine? (Staff at Moss Street will inform patients when the 2019 Government funded vaccine is available)
- 65 years and over
- Anyone with a chronic condition, and
- All ATSI people from the age of 6 months.
It is recommended that all people over the age of 6 month be vaccinated, and those not in the above categories can purchase the vaccine. The more people vaccinated the less chance for the virus to spread.
So, spread the word and not the virus, get vaccinated.
