Influenza Immunisation Program for Staff

Get Vaccinated against Influenza!

Flu is just around the corner! Commonly known as ‘the flu’, influenza is a highly contagious disease that can be serious, debilitating and affect the whole body. This year we have again sourced a quadrivalent vaccine which helps to provide protection from 4 strains of influenza virus.

When?

An email has been sent to Deans and Directors asking them to nominate an Area Coordinator, if they wish to fund the program for their staff.

If your faculty/division has agreed to participate in the program, OH&S will email relevant information to the nominated Area Coordinator who will then forward the booking link and relevant costing information to staff in their areas.

Some facts about the flu!

  • Influenza is a potentially fatal disease that is estimated to cause more deaths than accidents on roads.
  • Between 5% and 20% of the Australian population may be infected with influenza each year.
  • Vaccination is the single most effective way of protecting yourself against influenza infection
  • Hand washing and personal hygiene, such as trying not to touch your mouth or nose are also important preventative measures
