Facts About Influenza
What is influenza (flu) and how is it transmitted?
Influenza is a viral infection, caused by influenza virus types A, B or C. The virus is transmitted by virus-containing aerosols produced by coughing, sneezing or by direct contact with respiratory secretions.
Can you get influenza from a flu vaccine?
Influenza vaccines will not give you the flu, as the vaccines available in Australia do not contain ‘live’ virus. After vaccination, the person will develop antibody levels that are likely to protect them against the strains of virus represented in the vaccine.
What do they mean when they refer to a Quadrivalent Vaccine?
Why do I need to get vaccinated against the flu every year?
What will happen in my appointment?
During your appointment, a trained Pharmacist or Nurse Provider will administer a flu vaccination. No prior prescription will be required and appointments take only minutes. You will be asked to complete a consent form and you may be asked some questions about your existing health and any previous reactions you may have had.
How long will my appointment take?
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment and be aware you will need to remain in store for a further 15 minutes observation period in the unlikely event of an adverse reaction.
