2018 Flu Vaccines

Friday, 20th April 2018

The Ballarat Group Practice will be running organised Flu Clinics at each Practice starting late April 2018.

The appointments during these Clinic times have been set up to allow doctors enough time to administer a flu vaccination for each patient only. By running these brief appointments consecutively, we hope to reduce waiting time for patients.  If you require any other service in addition to the flu vaccine please book a regular GP appointment.

A fee will apply for flu vaccines; though eligible patients (see below) will not be charged.

Patients eligible to receive a free government supplied flu vaccine, are:

  • all individuals aged 65 years and over
  • all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 15 years of age and over
  • all pregnant women
  • any person 6 months of age and over with a chronic medical condition as determined by their GP

Please contact reception staff to schedule an appointment for your annual Flu Vaccination.
