The best protection against influenza is immunisation, and all Western Australians are urged to get their flu jab ahead of the winter months to help prevent severe illness. 

Free influenza vaccines will be available to all Western Australians aged six-months and older for the months of May and June. Some providers may charge an administration fee.   

The highly contagious influenza virus can severely affect the respiratory system and cause symptoms ranging from minor to life-threatening. 

Influenza is a serious disease, especially for the most vulnerable members of our community, including older adults, young children, pregnant women, Aboriginal people and people with chronic medical conditions.

Receiving an influenza vaccine in May and June will help optimise protection over the peak period for influenza transmission in Western Australia. 

To get your free influenza vaccine, book your appointment at participating GPs, community pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services.
