Campaigns that Promote Healthy Lifestyles

Health Calendar

Flu Shot Month
Flu viruses can change abruptly and at different times of the year, so the vaccines are adjusted for the hemisphere you live in. Northcote Medical offers flu jabs for 65 and over, kids between 6 months and 5, for those with chronic medical problems and for pregnant women.

1st May - 31st May
Quit Smoking Campaign
This is a month-long quit smoking initiative dedicated to helping people to quit smoking with the support of their GP or pharmacist. Research shows that if a smoker can quit for a month, they are more than five times more likely to become a permanent ex-smoker.

1st October - 31st October
Mental Health Month
Mental Health Month aims to activate, educate and engage the community about mental health through a week of interactive events across the state. The timing of the campaign centres on World Mental Health Day, which is marked each year on October 10.

1st October - 31st October
Kids Health Checks
This is about making small lifestyle changes that can make a big difference to your health. By simply keeping an eye on what your kids eat, your kids will have more energy, look and feel better and reduce the risk of chronic diseases that go hand in hand with an unhealthy lifestyle.

1st November - 30th November
