As we approach the Winter months, Kew Gardens Aged Care will be planning the provision of pneumococcal and/or flu vaccines to our residents and staff. However, we have been recently advised by our Doctors at Kew Gardens that there is an unusual strain of influenza present in the USA. As a consequence, the vaccines to Australia have been slightly delayed until April. When they do arrive, we will commence the Vaccination programme for our Residents (and staff who wish to have it), as per usual.
