Let’s discuss the flu shot

We hear many reasons as to why our patients are reluctant to get it. “I don’t get sick”, “I know someone who got the flu shot and had the flu for 4 months” etc etc

It is important to see that in light of everything happening in the world right now (*cough cough* Covid-19) we need to acknowledge the impact this vaccine can have.

The vaccine isn’t just for YOU. It is for those around you, your loved ones, your colleagues, your neighbours, anyone you come into contact with…(you get the idea)!

With limited stock available, we are fortunate to still have some government funded vaccines available (based on eligibility).

That small sting is SO WORTH protecting yourself and your loved ones!
