Help Stop the Flu in 2022, Free Flu Vaccination Program.
This year, it’s even more important to get the flu vaccine.
The Victorian Minister for Health has announced that anyone aged six months and over is eligible for a free flu vaccination between 1 June and 30 June.
The flu vaccination is already free for eligible groups under the Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program (NIP) including children under 5 years, people over 65 years, pregnant women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people with certain medical conditions. This program has been implemented to boost vaccination coverage and avoid more hospitalisations throughout winter.
Everyone should get a yearly flu vaccination to be protected for the peak flu season, which is generally June to September, but influenza can be spread all year round.
We have opened additional flu clinics,
Monday 20 June 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Wednesday 22 June 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Thursday 23 June 4:00pm – 6:00pm
We prefer bookings to be made online, using the book an appointment at the top of this page or using the Appointuit app, if you are unsuccessful, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with preferred day/time or call the practice on 9380 1384, please note if calling, the phones will be busy, you may need to hold for an extended period.
Unfortunately, if you have already had a private flu vaccine which you have paid for, you will not be eligible for reimbursement, it is only applicable if you are vaccinated between 1 June and 30 June.

Grantham Street General Practice is partnering with the University of Melbourne in a clinical trial called CovidCare.
CovidCare is a project looking at the safety and efficacy of a self-monitoring app for patients with Covid-19 symptoms and how self-isolation impacts their mental health. It is also available to those who are close contacts and need to complete a period of self-isolation. Hopefully the information gathered will lead to improvement in care pathways for GPs. patients and their families affected by Covid-19.
