POWP Hospital to screen and vaccinate eligible patients for influenza

12 June 2018

Following on from the challenging influenza season in 2017, there is an initiative at Prince of Wales Hospital, Randwick to screen for patients who may be eligible for the influenza vaccine under the current National Immunisation Program.

If appropriate, patients will be vaccinated whilst they are inpatients at Prince of Wales Hospital. The patient’s immunisation encounter will be noted in the discharge summary that goes to the patient’s GP.
