Flu shot reminder

DESPITE hamming it up for the camera, Brand MHR Gary Gray is serious about getting his annual flu vaccination.

Mr Gray had his flu shot and said it was easier for people to access with many pharmacies able to give the jab without the need for a prescription.

�One thing I never skip is my flu shot. It gives me good protection against those nasty flu strains each year,� he said.

He also stressed the need for children to be properly immunised.

�I believe parents should have the final say in making health decisions about their child, but when it comes to immunisation there is a strong public interest in ensuring children are immunised. Unless a parent has a deeply held religious view, there should be no exemptions to the community expectation that children are immunised.�
