Flu Vaccinations

2016 WA Influenza Immunisation Program

All government-funded influenza vaccines provided in WA in 2016 will be quadrivalent influenza vaccines. This means that the flu vaccines will contain protection from four different strains of influenza. This is a change to previous government funded flu vaccinations, which were trivalent.

Government-funded influenza vaccines will be available from mid to late April.

We will update our website once these vaccines become available.

The government-funded  flu vaccine is free for the following people:

  • Pregnant women
  • Persons 65 years of age or older
  • Children aged 6 months to less than 5 years old
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months to less than 5 years or 15 years and older
  • Individuals with the following medical conditions:
    • Heart disease
    • Diabetes
    • Severe asthma
    • Chronic lung conditions
    • Impaired immunity
    • Diseases of the nervous system
    • Renal disease
    • Haematological disorders

The Quadrivalent vaccine is no longer available through any supplier any WA.

Mead recommends that Trivalent is a good alternative. For those patients who are not eligible for the free vaccine you can purchase this Trivalent at the practice on the day of your appointment for $15.00
