Free flu jabs from this weekend

FREE swine flu vaccinations will start being rolled out in schools across the Fraser Coast from Saturday.

Queensland Health, in conjunction with the Fraser Coast Regional Council, will be arranging for vaccination teams to hold clinics at the four state high schools in Maryborough and Hervey Bay.

The program is aimed at reducing the impact of a second wave of Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 influenza (Swine Flu).

The Panvax H1N1 vaccine is available free to all Queenslanders and can be given to all people from the age of six months.

Anybody interested in heading to one of the clinics must RSVP by calling the council on 1300 79 49 29.

The clinics will be held from 9am to 3pm at the following schools:

• Aldridge State High School, Boys Avenue, Maryborough (school hall) – Saturday, March 6

• Hervey Bay State High School, Beach Road, Pialba (the Great Hall) – March 13
