Annual Influenza / Prevenar Vaccination

The influenza virus ( commonly known as flu) is a viral disease that causes widespread illness every year. Influenza is a very contagious infection of the airways and spreads easily from person to person through coughing, sneezing and close contact. It can affect people of all ages. People catching the flu can feel very tired and suffer from high fever, runny nose, muscle pains, sneezing, coughing, headache, sore throat…
It is usually not dangerous for most healthy people, but it can be devastating for some people. The virus can cause severe complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia, seriously impacting patients health that can result in hospitalization and sometimes it can even be deadly.
The influenza virus changes every year, and that is why the vaccine is adapted to the type of virus strain each season. That is why it is important to get the vaccine each year.

The doctors at Halekulani Medical Centre are committed to keep patients as healthy as possible. We recommend children from birth to be vaccinated.
It is especially important for patients over 65 to get vaccinated, to avoid devastating consequences.
Pregnant women are also advised to get the Flu Vaccine and Whooping Cough (Pertussis), as it will give them additional protection for them and their baby.

Please call the surgery and our friendly receptionist will be happy to assist you to book an appointment to get your shot.
