Fox Valley Medical Centre conduct drive through flu vaccination for over 65s

Fox Valley Medical Centre Practice Manager, Sarah Williams reports on recent drive through flu vaccination for those over 65. 

"This year Fox Valley Medical Centre, in conjunction with their standard flu vaccination clinics, have been conducting drive through over 65 Flu Vaccination Clinics. These clinics have meant that during the COVID-19 period patients have been able to receive their flu vaccination in the safety of their car with minimal contact. The clinics were run at the old school site by Dr Sandral, Dr Walker, Dr Daghighi and Dr Gray together with the practice nurses Louise Kimbell, Jane Meier and Kylie Chandler.

The patients were thrilled with the service, many stating it was quite the adventure for them during this lonely isolation period.

In the past 3 weeks Fox Valley Medical Centre have vaccinated over 1400 patients at both the drive through clinics and in the Centre.

We thank all the FVMC staff for their hard work and their commitment to keeping the local community as flu free as possible."
