Vaccinations This Winter Season.

Peak Pharmacies are currently busy administering a few different vaccinations.

These vaccinations include the Infuenza Vaccination (Flu Shot), the COVID-19 Moderna Vaccine for your first, second, booster or winter dose.



COVID-19 VACCINES

Currently, at Peak Pharmacies stores across Geelong, you can access the Moderna Covid-19 Vaccine for your first, second, booster or winter booster doses (where eligible).


COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone in Australia. This includes people without a Medicare card, overseas visitors, international students, migrant workers and asylum seekers. Getting vaccinated will help protect you, your family and your community from COVID-19.


If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, waiting 3 months between your positive test and your next does of the vaccine is likely to lead to a better immune response and provide more protection for longer.



THE COVID-19 WINTER BOOSTER

This dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is particularly important for the winter season, and with the potential for new variants of COVID-19 to be introduced into the community.

It is recommended for people considered at most risk from the impacts of COVID-19:

•People aged 65 years and older

•People who are severely immunocompromised

•Residents of aged care and disability facilities, and

•Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and older.

Noting that vaccinations can wane over time, the recommended COVID-19 Winter dose will bolster your immunity for optimal protection over the winter season.


THE FLU SHOT

Yearly influenza vaccination is recommended for people aged 6 months and over.

At Peak Pharmacies, our Pharmacists can vaccinate anyone over the age of 10.



You can have both your Flu Vaccine and the COVID-19 Vaccine on the same day.

For more information on any of the vaccines mentioned, visit the Australian Government Department of Health Website.
