Consent Form

Please bring a completed consent form to your scheduled appointment.

Once the free Staff Flu Clinic finishes, the vaccine will still be available at the Health Service and will still be free. If your visit to the Health Service is only in order to receive the flu vaccine then your appointment would be bulk billed. These appointments will need to be booked with the nursing staff.
