Protect yourself against flu and COVID-19
During winter our risk of catching viral illnesses is higher. Staying up to date with your vaccinations, for both COVID-19 and flu, is a simple step you can take to help protect yourself, your family and everyone you love.
It’s safe and convenient to get your COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the same time. Visit your local GP, pharmacy, or Aboriginal Medical Service to get vaccinated now.
The flu vaccine is free for people aged 65 years and over, children aged 6 months to under 5 years old, Aboriginal people, pregnant women and people at higher risk of serious illness from flu.
An additional COVID-19 winter booster is available for people aged 65 and over, and other people at risk of serious illness from COVID-19, now.
By protecting yourself, you’ll help keep your family, friends and community safe too.
