Influenza vaccination information

Private and government funded vaccines for 2024 are now available at the practice. Private flu vaccine fee is $25.

​Bookings for flu vaccinations can be made online or by calling our reception staff.

Vaccines may also be given during a standard GP consultation which can be booked online.

Please note that children aged less than 9 will need 2 flu vaccinations 1 month apart IF this is their first flu vaccination​.

Patients over 65 will receive an adjuvanted vaccine.

The influenza and coronavirus vaccine can be given at the same time. All patients booking an over 65 flu vaccination can receive the newest Moderna booster at the same time as their flu vaccine if they are eligible.
