The Free influenza vaccination during June and July initiative was developed to encourage all West Australians to protect themselves and others against influenza.
For the past two years WA has been relatively protected from influenza, however with interstate and international travel open, there is the potential for higher cases of influenza this winter.
Seasonal influenza is a common, highly-contagious, potentially serious viral respiratory illness. Annual vaccination is your best protection and is recommended for everyone aged from 6 months.
You can also help to prevent the spread of influenza by covering coughs and sneezes, washing your hands regularly, cleaning surfaces and staying home if you are unwell.
