National Flu Vaccine Shortage

Unfortunately this year due to the high number of demand for the flu vaccine, WA Health Authorities are now limiting the supply of the vaccine to GPs and chemists. A surprising 30% surge in demand ahead of winter season has impacted supplies to Australia.

"According to states and territories, compared to last year, there has been a 25-30 per cent increase in demand," Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Hobbs said in a statement.
Health authorities say they have been a victim of their own success, with doctors, the Australian Medical Association and governments’ push to encourage people to get vaccinated working so well they now can’t keep up

Queensgate Medical Centre at this time only has Government vaccination stock for people over the age of 65, people with a chronic health condition and children between 3 - under 5 years old.

 

OUT OF STOCK VACCINES:

  • Private Flu Vaccines

  • Junior Flu Vaccines (6 months - under 3 years old)


We will keep our patients updated via our Facebook page and website on when we receive more stock for this vaccine. Please also feel free to call reception 9456 1811 for any further updates on the vaccine.
