Flu vaccines now available at Earlwood Medical Centre
Earlwood Medical Centre is now ready to give flu vaccines (on both government funded and private basis) for those in need, regardless whether you are a baby, an adolescent, an adult or elderly.
Ground-breaking flu vaccines are now available for free to Australians aged 65 and over. Health authorities introduced the ‘super vaccines’ targeted at this age group in response to last year’s deadly flu season.
Of the 1100 influenza-associated deaths recorded in 2017, 90 per cent were in the elderly.With winter less than two months away, the federal government on Wednesday encouraged older Australians to take advantage of the enhanced vaccines. Make your appointment today to discuss with our nurses and doctors regarding to your need of the flu vaccine.

Kristy is a psychologist with significant expertise working with adolescents and adults. Kristy adopts a holistic approach when providing treatment to her clients and uses evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, CBT- Trauma focused or Family Therapy.
We recently had a lot of enquiries about the availability of flu vaccines this year and many would like to get it done right away.
From the latest clinical studies and the Royal Australian College of GP as well as the Australian Medical Association's recommendations, the best time to have the flu vaccine is LATE APRIL TO MAY. Unless you are going overseas, otherwise if you have your flu vaccine now it might not be effective when the flu season is at its peak.
This year we shall also have the super-strength (reinforced strength) flu vaccine for those over 65s.
Don't rush for the flu vaccine now but get the timing right before the flu season peaks. Come and speak to one of our doctors / nurses if you have any questions about this.

So no more fasting from midnight or no brushing teeth as well as no water after waking up before doing the test. Come speak to our doctors / nurses if you need one and what preparations require.

Changes to Pap Smears in Australia
As of December 1st 2017, the Pap smear test will be called the Cervical Screening Test. The duration between tests is now every 5 years instead of 2 years as the test is more accurate.
Women aged 25 to 74 yrs who are currently or have been sexually active should undergo this screening when they are next due for a Pap smear. This includes women who have had the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine.
When the doctor collects the smear the process is the same; the sample medium is now routinely a liquid that is tested for HPV (the virus that causes cervical cancer).
The test is a simple procedure to check the health of your cervix. It feels the same as the Pap test, but tests for HPV.
Anyone who engages in genital skin to skin contact with a person of any gender can be infected with HPV. Remember, having HPV does not necessarily mean that you or your partner have been unfaithful.
Love yourself, make sure your woman's health check is up to date. To book an appointment with our doctors, contact our friendly reception staff on 9554 7788 or
