Protect your health with flu shot
With summer coming to an end and cooler weather upon us, the importance of protecting yourself against influenza cannot be overstated.
In 2017 one of the worst outbreaks of influenza across Australia in recent years saw thousands of people get sick.
TerryWhite Chemmart Rockingham Read Street is stocked up with flu vaccines to help people protect themselves against the elements this year.
Pharmacist Bassam Alkiaat said it was wise for people 18-and-over to get on the front foot and ensure they do not get ill this winter.
“This time of the year is best to get vaccinated as it is building your immune system up early in the season and you have a head-start to ensuring you are not getting unwell,” he said.
“For people that are time conscious, we don’t have the issues of having to book an appointment with your doctor or the cost of this — it is quick and easy.”
