Immunisation

Flu shot sessions every Friday

News Article Date:

The Warrnambool City Council is making it even easier to protect yourself and your family from influenza.

Council will be running a flu vaccine service every Friday (excluding public holidays) until June 30, with no appointment necessary.

The service will operate from the Children’s Service Centre at 550-600 Raglan Parade.

Sessions will run from 8.30am until 2.30pm, with the injections to be administered by a fully qualified registered nurse immuniser.

A quadrivalent flu vaccine is being offered, which will help prevent four strains of influenza.

The initiative aims to increase the uptake of flu vaccinations in the general community.

This service costs $25. EFTPOS facilities will be available.

People aged 65 years and over, Aboriginal and Torres Strait people aged six months to less than five years and 15 years and over, pregnant women and people aged six months and over with certain medical conditions may be eligible for a free flu vaccine under the National Immunisation Program, however they will need to contact their doctor or community health service provider to obtain this.

The flu increases rates of sick leave and decreases productivity at workplaces, and Council’s nurse immunisers are also available to conduct immunisations sessions at workplaces.

Please contact Health and Local Laws Operations Officer Bianca Uwland on 5559 4855 for more information.
