Influenza Information

The flu is the most common vaccine-preventable illness in Australia. Although the incidence of flu was low last year, it is believed, that as we move around more freely, flu infections will circulate again.

The flu is a highly contagious viral infection. It may be mild in some, but it can cause very serious illness, hospitalization, and even death in otherwise healthy people. It is especially serious for babies, people aged over 65 years, people with underlying medical conditions, and pregnant women.

Immunization is a safe and effective way to help protect you from the flu. By getting immunized, you also help protect those that are too ill or too young to be immunized and help slow the spread of the disease.

It is important to get the flu vaccine every year. The virus strains that cause the flu change each year and the vaccine changes each year to match these strains. At Taylors’ Pharmacy, we will be using the 2021 quadrivalent vaccine for the flu immunization service. To book for your fu vaccination, Please call us or book online.

Who should get a flu shot?

Annual immunization against the flu is recommended for everyone over 6 months of age.

Can I get a flu vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine?

Current recommendations are that you will need to wait for a minimum of 7 days between your flu and COVID-19 vaccines. Having your flu shot when it is released will prevent any delay in receiving your COVID-19 vaccination when it becomes available. Information regarding the COVID-19 National Rollout Strategy and phases is available here.

Who is eligible for a free flu shot?

The Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program provides a free flu vaccine to eligible people, including:

  • People aged 65 and older
  • Pregnant women
  • All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months or over

Whooping Cough Information

Whooping cough (pertussis) is a highly contagious respiratory infection caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. It is spread by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

The infection begins with symptoms similar to a cold and develops into a cough with a distinctive ‘whooping’ sound when breathing in. This cough can last up to three months, even after antibiotic treatment is completed and the person is no longer infectious.

Whooping cough is particularly dangerous for babies aged under 6 months as they are more seriously affected and can develop fatal complications associated with the illness. One in every 200 babies aged under 6 months who gets whooping cough will die.

Immunization is the best protection against whooping cough and a booster is recommended for any adult who wishes to reduce the likelihood of getting and spreading the infection. Immunization is particularly important for people in close contact with infants. In NSW, pharmacists can administer whooping cough vaccination to people over 16 years of age without obtaining a prescription.

Please call us or book online to schedule a time for whooping cough vaccination.

Please note: The Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program provides a free whooping cough vaccine to eligible people, including:

  • Infants and children (5-dose schedule)
  • Adolescents aged 11 to 13 years
  • Pregnant women
