NSW Vaccine Centre has released advice for general practices about preserving flu vaccines for priority populations

 

28 May 2018

 

There has been unprecedented demand for influenza vaccine nationally. To preserve stock for priority populations:

  • Reserve Fluarix Tetra and FluQuadri in your fridge for children 3-4 years of age and those with medical risk factors aged 5-12 years (place any additional orders via your local PHU on 1300 066 055)
  • Use Afluria Quad for patients aged 18-64 years who are pregnant, Aboriginal or with medical risk factors (order via online system)
  • Only use Fluad and Fluzone High Dose for patients 65 years and over
