Quadrivalent Flu Vaccine Available April 14: Book your appointment now!

flushotWe expect the Quadrivalent flu vaccine to be available from April 14 this year.

This flu vaccine is recommended for everyone from 6 months of age, but is available free under the National Immunisation Program for people who face a high risk from influenza and its complications. These are:

  • People aged 65 years +
  • ATSI people aged 6 months to less than 5 years
  • ATSI people who are aged 15 years +
  • Pregnant women
  • People aged 6 months + with medical conditions such as severe asthma, lung or heart disease, low immunity or diabetes that can lead to complications from influenza.

The Quadrivalent flu vaccine is available privately for $20.

If you are travelling overseas before 14 April

  • If you require a flu shot before travelling, we can provide a private Trivalent flu vaccine for $15
  • It generally takes about 10 days for the vaccine to fully take effect

What is the difference?

The Trivalent flu vaccine offers protection against 3 strains of the flu virus, as opposed to the Quadrivalent flu vaccine, which offers protection against 4 strains.
