Am I eligible for a free flu vaccine?

ELIGIBILITY FOR INFLUENZA VACCINES FUNDED BY THE NATIONAL IMMUNISATION PROGRAM (NIP):

Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons ≥6 months of age.

Influenza vaccines are funded on the NIP for the following groups, due to their increased risk of complications from influenza:

  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander persons aged 6 months to <5 years or >15 years

  • All adults aged >65 years

  • All persons aged >5 years who have certain medical conditions which increase the risk of influenza disease complications; for example, severe asthma, lung or heart disease, low immunity or diabetes.

  • Pregnant women (during any stage of pregnancy)

  • All children >6 months to <5 years

Please contact reception if you have any questions on your eligibility of the Government-funded flu vaccine and to ensure our 2018 stocks have arrived.
