Influenza vaccinations are recommended for all persons of 6 months and older. In 2019, more than 6 million doses are available for high risk patients, fully subsidised by the government. Eligible persons include people 65 years and over, pregnant women, persons with chronic disease conditions as well as all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from 6 months of age. Vaccines are also available privately at the centre for $15 each when a patient is not eligible for a subsidised vaccination. Talk to your doctor to check if you are eligible on the day of your appointment.

Influenza is a serious, highly contagious infection that not only results in time off from work and missed holidays, but may also result in life threatening conditions. "The flu" not only affects the young and elderly, but persons who are fit and healthy. Sepsis is a serious condition that can cause rapid deteriorations. Those close will remember Maddy Jones and Thomas Snell.

This year there is a new A strain (H3N2) and a new strain for the B Victoria linage. Influenza virus strains included in the 2019 seasonal influenza vaccines are:

A (H1N1): an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09 like virus A (H3N2): an A/Switzerland/8060/2017 (H3N2) like virus B: a B/Colorado/06/2017 like virus (not included in the trivalent vaccine) B: a B/Phuket/3073/2013 like virus

To continue to provide the best possible protection for those 65 years and over, an enhanced trivalent vaccine, Fluad® (Seqirus), is being supplied for those aged 65 years and over.
