Influenza vaccines are available at family doctors, some pharmacies (5 years and older) and Early Childhood Immunisation Centres (6 months to under 5 years). Some workplaces also provide influenza vaccine for staff.

While some people are eligible for a free influenza vaccine, family doctors, pharmacists and other immunisation providers may charge a consultation fee for administering the vaccine. You should check this at the time of booking.

ACT Health Early Childhood Immunisation Clinics (for children aged 6 months to under 5 years) and ACT Health Antenatal Clinics (for pregnant women) don’t charge a consultation fee. Call Central Health Intake 02 5124 9977 to make an appointment.
