Influenza can be a serious illness that is sometimes fatal. Elderly and those with ongoing medical conditions, such as asthma, are most at risk. However anyone can come into contact with the flu at anytime so it is important to get vaccinated in order to protect you and your family.

Whooping cough is a highly contagious disease that can cause serious illness in babies and adults. Babies are especially vulnerable to this life threatening disease and are often exposed to it by immediate family. It is important to get vaccinated to protect yourself and vulnerable children around you. Even if you have been vaccinated before your immunity decreases over time so it is recommended to get another dose every 10 years.
We can provide the Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine to adults over 18 years.
Talk to one of our pharmacists to see if this vaccine is right for you.
