Great news, we are starting our 2021 flu immunisations on Wednesday 14 April. We are only being supplied vaccines for people who are 65 or older and these immunisations are all fully funded. These vaccines are specifically manufactured to support those who are 65 or older.
There will be three different vaccines this year:
- FLUAD® QUAD – for adults 65 years or older
- AFLURIA® QUAD – for children and adults aged 3–64 years.
- AFLURIA® QUAD JUNIOR – for children aged under 3 years, i.e., 6–35 months.
We do not yet have a confirmed date for any other funded or unfunded vaccines, other than they are expected at some point in May. The availability of these vaccines is centrally managed across the whole country so we will provide an update as soon as we know more.
