Flu Shot 2022



Get your flu shot today

Influenza (also known as 'flu') is a highly contagious illness caused by the influenza virus.

Both flu and COVID-19 are circulating in the community. It is important to protect yourself and your community by getting vaccinated.

Speak to your General Practitioner (GP), pharmacist or Aboriginal Medical Service about getting your flu vaccine as soon as possible.

Pharmacists can now administer flu vaccines to children aged 5 and over. Parents with children aged under 5 should see their GP.

Make an appointment with your GP or pharmacist to get vaccinated.

Some people are eligible for a free flu vaccine because they are more vulnerable to flu:

  • children from 6 months to under 5 years of age
  • people with serious health conditions (including severe asthma, diabetes, cancer, immune disorders, obesity, kidney, heart, lung or liver disease)
  • pregnant women
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from 6 months of age
  • people who are 65 years of age and over.

Please note: some providers may charge an administration or consultation fee. Ask your GP or pharmacist if this applies to you.

If you are not eligible for a free flu vaccine, your GP or pharmacist will charge you a small fee. The fee may vary between providers.

Why do I need a flu shot?

Influenza, or flu, is a respiratory illness that is more serious than the common cold. Each year, people in NSW die from flu-related illness.

You can catch flu at any time of the year, but activity usually peaks in winter. Although the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, flu and COVID-19 are caused by different viruses.

There are some simple things you can do to reduce the risk of catching or spreading flu and COVID-19 to others this winter. Protect yourself and the community by getting both vaccines.

An annual flu shot gives the best protection

You need to get a vaccination annually because flu viruses change (mutate) year to year. Flu vaccines are updated each year to provide protection against the flu strains likely to circulate in the coming flu season.

By getting a flu shot, you are protecting yourself and your loved ones from serious illness.

General Practitioners (GPs) and pharmacies start to offer the flu vaccine around April/May each year.

For those eligible, the free flu shot can be accessed through your GP or Aboriginal Medical Service. If you are 65 years and over, you can also go to your local pharmacist. Make an appointment today to get vaccinated.

If you are not eligible to receive a free flu vaccine, you can purchase the vaccine from your GP or pharmacist for a small fee. The fee may vary between providers.

Flu and COVID-19 vaccines can be given together

The flu and COVID-19 vaccines can be given together, at the same time. Many people who are eligible for a free flu vaccine will also be eligible for a winter COVID-19 booster. Ask your doctor whether you need additional protection against COVID-19.
