What Influenza vaccine am I eligible for?

Who should get vaccinated against influenza?

Yearly influenza vaccination is recommended for people aged 6 months and over. Immunising against the influenza virus saves lives and helps lower the risk of diagnostic uncertainty between the flu and COVID-19.

Anyone who wants to protect themselves against influenza can talk to their immunization provider about getting vaccinated. For more information about the influenza vaccine, click here.
