Free Influenza vaccine for Children

Free Influenza vaccine for Children

In 2018, the Queensland Government will provide free influenza vaccine for children aged 6 months to 4 years of age.
The free vaccine will be made available through general practices and other childhood immunisation providers, in preparation for the 2018 influenza season.
Influenza causes substantial illness in children and vaccination is proven to reduce the childs risk of contracting influenza and suffering from its complications. Vaccinating young children will also protect the wider community by reducing the circulating influenza strains.
The Free Vaccine is also available for patients with medical conditions and for over 65 years and over. Victoria Point Surgery will be running Vaccine Clinics.
