3 April, 2018 –
I urge parents in Stafford electorate to take advantage of the Queensland Government’s free flu vaccination program for children aged under five years.
The free vaccine is available through your GP and other childhood immunisation providers and is for children aged 6 months to less than 5 years of age.
The risks of serious complications for children who contract influenza are high. Vaccinating young children also protects the wider community by reducing the circulating influenza strains.
Brisbane City Council provides a free immunisation service through their community immunisation clinics.
