Flu Vaccinations 2020 - updated 7th May 2020
You may be aware that due to extremely high demand, access to flu vaccines for general practices has been very unpredictable this season. We are doing our best to make sure we have enough ongoing supplies for all our practice patient population, especially those people with chronic health problems, our patients over 65 and young children and babies.
Due to large demand we are not able to send usual reminders through our system.
We therefore ask that you please phone the practice and ask to be added to the flu vaccine waiting list. We will then phone you back with an appointment time and date within the fortnight.
You may have also heard on the news that SA Health has no more supplies of the vaccine recommended for people 65 years and over. We will instead be providing the usual 4 strain flu vaccine which is given to everyone else. This vaccine is safe and effective and does provide sufficient influenza immunity for all age groups.
PLEASE NOTE: If you plan on visiting someone in a Nursing Home, please request a signed flu vaccination confirmation card from the nurse or doctor at the time of your flu vaccination appointment.
After hours & emergency
If you are experiencing a medical emergency ring 000 for an ambulance immediately.
If you need after hours medical care ring the Practice on 8410 0774 and you will be connected with our locum service, who may contact one of the Practice doctors.
