The free vaccines are available at participating pharmacies and GPs, and at State-run vaccination clinics from 1 June to 30 June 2022.

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.

Children, pregnant women, seniors and Aboriginal people are among those most at risk of serious complications from influenza. Even if you are young and healthy, getting vaccinated helps to protect others in the community who are at increased risk of influenza.

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.
