People who provide essential community services are recommended to receive annual influenza vaccine.
Influenza infections can place considerable pressure on both public and private healthcare services. Vaccinating people who provide essential services can minimise disruption of essential activities during influenza outbreaks.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
