The Government funded Influenza vaccine is now in stock!

Last year was a particularly bad year for influenza with the highest levels of activity since 2009. The ‘Aussie flu’ strain was mutated meaning the vaccine was less effective than hoped for.

This year the vaccine has changed for the better, covering more strains of the flu virus. Now children from the ages of 6 months to under 5 years are being offered the flu vaccine for free as they are thought to be ‘super-spreaders’ in the community.

Along with children, the government also provide free vaccines for other medical groups; - All individuals from 6 months of age with medical conditions predisposing them to severe influenza

- Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy

- All aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people from 15 years and over

- All individuals 65 years and older

Adults aged 65 and over will be offered a higher dose of the flu vaccination as they are most at risk of developing complications from flu.

Please note that the vaccine does not contain live flu virus and cannot cause flu.

However, some people may experience mild flu-like symptoms for up to 48 hours as their immune system responds to the vaccine. While some people may experience mild side effects such as pain, swelling and redness at the injection site, these usually resolve quickly.

Immediate allergic reactions are rare. People who are allergic to egg are no longer excluded from flu vaccines. If you experience any concerning symptoms, please seek medical help.

If you are interested in having your flu vaccine or would like to find out if you’re eligible for the government funded vaccine pop by and see me in clinic.

Take care and stay healthy 😊

Fancy a Cup of Coffee? ☕️ Recent research has suggested that drinking coffee can have some health benefits such as a lower risk of liver disease and some cancers.

But how much caffeine should you be drinking?

Pregnant ladies should avoid caffeine but if needed have no more than 200mg of caffeine a day. Other adults can have up to 400mg.

How much is in my drink? - 1 mug of filtered coffee 140mg - 1 mug of instant coffee 100mg - 1 mug of tea 75mg - 1 can of cola 40mg - one 250ml can of energy drink 80mg

Come and see me in clinic today for more advice and tips on healthy eating.

Take care & stay healthy 😊
