CAMPASPE Shire Council is urging community members to book in for their flu vaccination as the pandemic has lowered resident immunity.
General Manager Development Paul McKenzie said getting vaccinated against the flu is even more important this year.
"During the pandemic, there has been lower exposure to influenza virus and lower levels of influenza vaccine coverage compared to previous years," he said.
"While it's fantastic that we're all vaccinated against COVID-19, the flu vaccination is another 'jab' to add to our list. Annual vaccination is the most important measure to prevent influenza and its complications."
Council flu vaccinations are free for vulnerable groups and for children under five.
They cost $30 for all other members.
