Delivery of influenza vaccine to GP practices to commence next week

29 March 2019

 

Due unseasonably high influenza activity and ongoing transmissions, NSW Health has announced that they are making influenza vaccines available as soon as the vaccines are received into the State Vaccine Centre.

Deliveries will start next week for Fluad and Afluria Quad or Fluarix vaccines to GP practices and Aboriginal Medical Services. GPs have been advised not to schedule clinics until vaccines have been received, as deliveries to all NSW providers can take up to 3 weeks. Priority to pregnant women and people over 65 years has also been advised.

Influenza vaccine delivery for children aged 6 months to 5 years is expected to start mid-April.

Pre-orders for influenza vaccine can be placed on the NSW Vaccine Centre.
