Flu vaccines for ages 10 to 64 are available now, and can be booked online.

At an administration cost of $15 per person, government-subsidised flu vaccines are also available for those eligible, including people who:

We anticipate flu vaccines for over 65s will be available in early April. Please speak to our team if you’d like to be added to our waitlist and we will contact you once stock arrives.
You must ensure there is a break of at least 14 days between having your flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine.
Note – those eligible may obtain their flu vaccines from their GP, and this may be bulk-billed.
Appointments preferred, but walk-ins available. Book via your Medadvisor app or via our booking link below.

Watch out for gastro12-04-2021
Some germs can be effectively removed from our hands by using hand sanitiser. Others can’t.
For example, hand sanitiser does not work well to prevent the spread of gastro.
So if someone in your household is sick with gastro, the best way to prevent the spread is by washing your hands the old-fashioned way, with soap and water.
April 11 is World Parkinson’s Day
Did you know that there are 27,000 Victorians living with Parkinson’s disease? It’s a progressive neurological condition that affects control of body movements, and it can affect anyone.
Each person’s experience of Parkinson’s disease is different. With a combination of medication and allied health support, symptoms can be managed and people with Parkinson’s disease can live independent, rewarding lives.
