Please check the new guideline here.

We will continue providing AstraZeneca vaccine to people who are eligible which includes:

  • All adults aged over 60

  • All adults, regardless of the age who have received the first dose of AstraZeneca with no major adverse reaction, are strongly encouraged to receive their second dose.

Influenza Vaccination bookings

At Gympie Road Medical Centre, we provide FREE Flu vaccine to all Medicare card holders.

 

The Flu (or influenza ) is a highly contagious virus .Yearly immunisation is strongly recommended for people at risk and or people who live or work with people at risk.

The Flu vaccine cannot give you Flu because it is not a live vaccine.

Covid-19 vaccination does not protect against Influenza and it is highly recommended that people get immunised for both.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) now recommends a minimum seven day window between the COVID-19 vaccine and the flu vaccine, regardless of which is administered first.

Please book online for your free Flu vaccination today.
