It Is Nearly Flu Season

Here at Chelsea Beach Medical Centre we are offering Flu Vaccinations.

We are committed to your health and wellbeing, therefore we consider it important to 

think about being immunised.

Please give us a call on 9772 4849 to organise a time in one of our sessions. If seen in a 

session and no other health issues are discussed, the visit will be Bulk Billed.

The only cost will be the vaccine which is $15.00 per person and must be paid at time of 

immunisation.
