Older people and those with an underlying medical condition could also develop complications as a result of the flu.
Vaccination can help stop the spread of the virus in the community, protection develops about 2 weeks after receiving then vaccination and lasts for up to one year. In store we have pharmacists qualified to administer influenza vaccinations to adults.

Your unique genetic profile determines how your body responds to certain medications. That is why some people get minimal benefit or may experience dangerous side-effects. The latest research allows us to personalise your medication by reviewing your DNA and assessing how your body processes many common medications.
MyDNA is a genetic test that identifies which medications will work best for you. It is a pharmacogenomic test that identifies gene variants in four major enzyme systems and how these genes metabolise commonly prescribed medications.
myDNA identifies how your individual genetic structure will respond to medication so your doctor can prescribe the most suitable medication at the right dosage for your body.

As one of our primary senses, our ability to hear well is something that many of us take for granted. Although hearing loss can occur throughout life, its prevalence increases as we get older. Despite over one in five Australian adults living with hearing impairment, it is often a health concern that many ignore. At TerryWhite Chemmart® Doubleview we offer regular hearing assesments conducted by Telethon Speech and Hearing.
