Flu Vaccinations at CBD Doctors Melbourne
All Australians benefit from having a yearly flu vaccination - whilst groups such as pregnant women, children, 65+ year olds and those with chronic diseases are those most at risk, it is also recommended that other healthy people are immunized to avoid the spread of the flu. The symptoms of flu include onset of fever, headaches, aches and pains and coughing/sneezing - but can also cause death particularly to those at risk (Influenza claimed the lives of 1,255 Australians in 2017). Side effects of flu vaccine can include pain, swelling, minor allergic reactions and mild symptoms of the flu though the benefits of vaccination far outweigh these side effects.
A flu vaccination - or 'flu jab' - simply involves having an injection, given into the upper arm by a nurse or doctor and only takes a few seconds and is available at CBD Doctors Melbourne.
