Geelong Medical & Health Group: Flu & Travel Vaccinations
Geelong Medical and Health Group would like to remind our patients that Flu Vaccinations will be available commencing mid-to-late April 2016.
The Department of Health Website indicates that the Quadrivalent flu vaccine which covers four stains of influenza virus is the most appropriate vaccine in 2016. The Trivalent which covers 3 stains may also be available still, however we are recommending that our patients are vaccinated with the Quadrivalent to maximise the cover.
Our Workplace & Corporate Health team are able to assist your employees with any Flu & Travel vaccinations and advice that may be required to help your people enjoy safe travel and return home healthy and also reduce their risk of contracting colds & flus throughout the year.
