Flu Vaccine 2021

The 2021 flu vaccine will be available soon. This includes the influenza vaccines that are available to eligible people for free under the National Immunisation Program.

Please note, not all patients are eligible for the National Immunisation Program so there may be a small out of pocket cost if you are not eligible.

Should I get a flu vaccine this year?

Behaviours such as increased hand washing and social distancing helped to stop the spread of flu viruses in the community last year. Relaxing social distancing restrictions this year may allow flu viruses to recirculate, even if they were hardly seen in 2020.

Please note, not all patients are eligible for the National Immunisation Program so there may be a small out of pocket cost if you are not eligible.

Under the National Immunisation Program, free flu vaccines are provided to the following groups who are at higher risk of complications from flu:
  • children aged 6 months to less than 5 years
  • all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
  • people aged 6 months and over with certain medical conditions that increase their chance of severe influenza and its complications
  • pregnant women (at any stage during pregnancy)
  • people aged 65 years and over
Can I get a flu vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine?

Vaccination experts recommend waiting 14 days between getting a flu vaccine and a COVID-19 vaccine. Given this, it will be important to plan both vaccinations.

It doesn’t matter in what order you get the vaccines.

When you book in for your flu vaccination, remember to tell us if you have received the COVID-19 vaccine (and when you received it). This will help us plan your appointment.
