Our flu vaccines have arrived and you can now book your appointment on-line from Tuesday 6th April. Open the HotDoc app and book an appointment at the flu clinic or click on the book appointment button below. If you cannot find an appointment please wait a few days as we make more appointments available. We recommend that everyone receives the flu vaccine. Anyone from 6 months of age can receive the flu vaccine. See below for your eligibility for a government funded flu vaccine. It is important to know that the COVID vaccine cannot be given within two weeks of any other vaccine. Please ensure your COVID and flu vaccines are given at least two weeks apart. It does not matter which vaccine you have first. Choose the vaccine that is available to you first.
