Having an annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to prevent yourself from getting the flu. 

Protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu this winter and call us to book an appointment for FLUVAX on (08) 9172 0400. Alternatively, you can or visit us from 10am to 1pm on Wednesday 15 April & Wednesday 22 April - we have set up a tent outside the front of the clinic to allow for social distancing.

Does the FLUVAX protect against COVID-19?

It is important to note that the flu shot does not protect against the coronavirus. There is currently no vaccine to protect against the new virus. However, the early signs of the flu and coronavirus are similar with respiratory symptoms (coughing) and fever. Getting your flu shot can give you a peace of mind and keep you healthy especially during this unprecedented time. It will also protect the people around you and prevent them from assuming you have the coronavirus. 

Getting your flu shot can also help health departments and authorities to respond to the outbreak of COVID-19 by reducing the number of patients and relief pressure on diagnostic, clinical and health systems. This will allow more resources to provide treatment to those affected by coronavirus.
