The Flu Shot is Your Best Defence

Flu Season

As the cooler weather sets in, we’re reminded of the dreaded flu season, widely touted to have started earlier than expected this year.

The Queensland Government have reported more than 7,000 flu cases since January which serves as a reminder to act now and take protective measures to safeguard our health and the health of our loved ones.

This year, the government has announced free flu vaccines until September 30 for those over 6 months of age. Medical Super Clinic has launched our flu clinic in an effort to ensure easy access to the flu vaccine.

Our clinics run each Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon, and we recommend securing your spot now to get ahead of the peak season, which typically runs from May to October.

The flu isn’t a mild inconvenience. It can be serious and in some cases deadly, especially for the vulnerable. The annual flu vaccine helps shield the debilitating effects of the viral infection and also serves to protect those around you.

Those over 65, babies, people with underlying medical conditions and pregnant women are at a higher risk of succumbing the effects of the flu. By booking an appointment now, you’re ensuring protection before the virus makes its rounds in the community.

The flu vaccine is safe and while no vaccine offers 100% protection, studies have shown that getting vaccinated significantly reduces the risk of getting sick and can lessen the severity of symptoms.

With flu season looming, now is the time to take action and arm yourself against this common yet preventable illness. Book your appointment at our flu clinic today and join us in staying one step ahead of the flu wave. Call our friendly reception team on 07 5619 7000 to secure your spot.
