Timing of Flu Vaccination

Optimal protection against influenza occurs within the first three to four months following vaccination. Timing of vaccination should aim to achieve the highest level of protection during peak influenza season.

This usually occurs from June to September in most parts of Australia. Vaccinating from April provides protection before the peak season.Further information visit https://www.health.gov.au/news/clinical-update-2020-seasonal-influenza-vaccines-early-advice-for-vaccination-providers

We will update you once we have secured stock.

Hand Washing
