Your pharmacist will ask you a few questions in a private consultation room and give the vaccine to the upper arm.
Vaccination is the most effective way of preventing and stopping the spread of the flu. It will protect you and those around you who may be at increased risk of flu related complications, including older people, pregnant women and those with an underlying medical condition or reduced immunity.
Vaccinating against the flu helps to reduce the chance of more serious outcomes and related complications.
Some people may experience mild side effects following vaccination, such as:
These side effects are usually mild, subside within a few days and do not normally require treatment.
More severe immediate adverse effects, such as hives or anaphylaxis, are very rare consequences of influenza vaccination. Your pharmacist is trained to recognise and manage any immediate, severe reactions.
Your pharmacist will check your suitability for a flu vaccination prior to vaccinating you.
Yes you’ll need to book an appointment to get your flu shot. You can register your interest now to be notified when flu vaccinations become available.
Yes. At Friendlies, vaccinations are delivered by pharmacists who have successfully completed an immunisation course approved by the Department of Health as well as first aid, CPR and anaphylaxis training.
The flu vaccine passes stringent Government safety testing before being approved for use. Plus, your pharmacist will check your suitability for a flu vaccination prior to vaccinating you.
Some people may experience mild side effects such as tenderness and/or redness at the injection site. This usually clears within a few days.
No. The viruses in the flu vaccine are not capable of causing the flu as they are inactive or ‘dead’. When you receive a flu vaccination, your immune system’s response is to form antibodies which will provide protection. Sometimes, flu-like symptoms may occur within 6-12 hours of receiving the vaccine and last 1-2 days. This is a common reaction to many vaccines.
