Goondir offers free vaccinations ahead of flu season

VACCINATIONS are a priority ahead of the influenza season, according to staff at Goondir Health Services.

The clinic is holding a free vaccination day on this afternoon for all Indigenous Australians in the community over the age of 15.

This afternoon's session, which will also include a barbecue, is aimed at encouraging the community to make their health a priority.

Ethel Hayden from Goondir Dalby said it was important the Indigenous community in Dalby attended.

"Sixty per cent of our clients in Dalby have a chronic disease,” she said.

"It is so important to have their flu vaccinations cause the last thing they need is another infection.

"We will try to get multiple vaccinations done in that day.”

Ms Hayden said last year one of the worst flu seasons in recent memory, and she wanted as many people to take advantage of the free vaccinations.

Free T-shirts will be offered to those who get in early today.

The free vaccinations will begin at midday and finish at 4pm.
