New resource - Influenza vaccination during COVID-19 - FAQs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

Influenza (flu) is a serious illness that can lead to hospitalisation or even death, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a higher risk of serious disease. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is even more important that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people do not miss out on getting their influenza vaccine.

We have created a new resource in an easy to read format that answers the questions about influenza vaccination during the COVID-pandemic that are being asked most frequently by the people in the community.

This resource answers the following questions:

  • Why should I get the flu jab?
  • Who should get the flu jab? Is the jab free?
  • When should I get the flu jab?
  • Where can I get the flu jab?
  • What about other routine vaccinations during the COVID-19 pandemic?
