It is that time of year again friends and family! You need a strong and reliable vaccine which protects against the following strains:

  • A (H1N1): an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09 like virus

  • A (H3N2): an A/Singapore/INFIMH-16-0019/2016 (H3N2) like virus

  • B: a B/Phuket/3073/2013 like virus

  • B: a B/Brisbane/60/2008 like virus.

Our immunity can weaken over a year of having the vaccine as well as being affected by the strains changing.

If you are in the following group of patients then you are eligible for a free vaccine as you are at particular risk from the flu:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children aged between six months and five years, and 15 years and older.

  • people aged six months or over who have medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) that mean they have a higher risk of getting serious disease
