What is the Flu?
The flu is a common viral infection that can be deadly, especially in high-risk groups. The flu attacks the lungs, nose and throat. Young children, older adults, pregnant women and people with chronic disease or weak immune systems are at high risk.
Symptoms include fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, congestion, runny nose, headaches and fatigue.

Why should I get a Flu Vaccine and what is it?
Being vaccinated causes your body to produce antibodies against the flu virus. This means your body can respond faster and more effectively to the flu.
By first coming across a non-infectious version of the virus in the vaccine, it learns to recognise it. When it comes across it again, your body can react much faster and in a more effective way.

How do I get my flu vaccine?
1. Head to the Bargain Chemist Flu vaccine booking form at
2. Select the location and time that best suits you.
3. Head in store at that time, and speak with the dispensary team. Don’t worry you’ll be sent a reminder prior to your appointment.
4. Complete the pre-vaccination screening and consent form.
5. A trained pharmacist vaccinator will then administer the vaccine in one of our private consultation rooms.
6. Following your vaccine you will need to wait 20 minutes for observation to monitor the unlikely event of an adverse reaction to the vaccine.
