CHEMIST WAREHOUSE FLU CLINIC
Chemist Warehouse Majura Park starts its flu clinic on Monday 6 May. Bookings are required, click here to see what's available.
The flu is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications. It is spread by contact with respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
It is estimated that the flu contributes to over 3,000 deaths and 18,000 hospitalisations in Australia each year. Symptoms of the flu can include fever, muscle and joint pain, extreme exhaustion, chills, sore throat and a stuffy nose.Immunisation is the best protection against getting and spreading the flu. Annual immunisation is recommended because the virus is constantly changing, and the vaccine changes accordingly. At Chemist Warehouse, we use the 2019 Quadrivalent vaccine.
