Flu Vaccine free of charge for older Australians

The Australian Government will provide two ground-breaking flu vaccines free of charge to more three million older Australians from April this year as a direct response to last year’s horrific flu season.

According to the Australian Government, more than 90 per cent of the 1100 flu related deaths in 2017 were people aged over 65 years of age. That age group will now be able to access the Fluad® and Fluzone High Dose through the National Immunisation Program.
