Should we be giving kids the flu vaccination this year?

Posted in Feed Play Love.

While COVID-19 is in the headlines, should we be considering the flu vaccination for our kids?

The flu vaccination for 2020 does not protect against the COVID-19, but doctors and pharmacists are urging people to consider vaccinating against influenza anyway.

Amy Evans is a pharmacist with Terry White Chemmart at Rouse Hill.

She explains how the flu vaccination works, and why we should be considering it for our families.

Listen to Amy Evans on Feed Play Love:


NOTE: The Terry White chain of pharmacists are opening bookings for vaccinations for March 23 and later now. Pharmacists cannot vaccinate children under ten although some Terry White pharmacies will have ‘family clinic days’ where children aged two and up can be vaccinated by a registered nurse.  You will have to check with your local chemist before booking to see if this is available.
