We currently have limited supply of over 65 and reasonable supply of under 65 flu vaccine, and are running regular clinics.
Demand for flu vaccines is much higher than normal years and supply is difficult to obtain and limited.
We are working hard to ensure everyone is protected for flu within the constraints of supply.
By Dr Lisa Prichard
All our patients would be aware of the unprecedented demand for flu vaccine this year.
Practices all over Australia are struggling with demand and supply.
On a good note, however so far flu prevalence is very low. One sixth transmission compared to the same time last year, mostly due our strict social distancing measures.
