Flu Vaccinations

10-Jul-2017

Vaccinations to protect Australians against four strains of this year’s influenza virus are available – and are free of charge to those most at risk of getting sick this flu season.

The Turnbull Government is providing more than 4.5 million doses of the influenza vaccine for free this year.

Those eligible for a free flu shot include people aged 65 years and over, most Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and those who suffer from chronic conditions.

Pregnant women are also eligible for a free flu shot. It’s safe to receive at any stage of pregnancy and not only protects Mum, but baby too.

I urge everyone to consider getting a flu shot this year. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for any person six months of age and older.
