Availability of flu vaccinations was raised at the teleconference and attached is the most recent link to a Media Release from Minister Hunt regarding vaccinations.
You will note the media release states the following and we suggest you discuss with your GPs:
- Minister Hunt released a statement encouraging all Australians to be vaccinated against the flu as soon as possible. Free government vaccine is now available in GP practices (for those over 65, children under 5 and those with relevant pre-existing conditions). It is not known when the privately funded vaccine will become available to GP surgeries.
