Free influenza vaccination during June and July campaign

Unpaid promotion

Get your free influenza vaccine during June (light blue)

The Free influenza vaccination during June and July initiative was developed to encourage all West Australians to protect themselves and others against influenza.

The free vaccines are available at participating pharmacies and GPs, and at COVID community vaccination clinics from 1 June to 31 July 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.

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.
