Free Flu Vaccination

Ray Williams Mp

As we continue moving through winter, it is more important than ever that our seniors protect themselves against the flu by getting vaccinated.

Getting the flu vaccination reduces the risk of getting the flu by up to 60 per cent and most importantly it provides vital protection against severe illness and death.

Those considered to be at higher risk of severe illness from influenza are eligible for a free flu vaccine under the National Immunisation Program and include:

• People aged 65 and over
• Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from six months of age
• Children from six months to under five years of age
• People with serious health conditions (including severe asthma, diabetes, cancer, immune disorders, obesity, kidney, heart, lung or liver disease)
• Pregnant women
