It’s time to book your kids in to get their influenza vaccination.

Western Australian primary school-aged children have access to free influenza vaccinations.

Getting the vaccine helps to reduce the spread of influenza and the pressure on the health system.

Seasonal influenza is a common, highly contagious and potentially serious viral illness.

Parents are urged to take advantage of free influenza vaccines for their children. The vaccines will be available from GPs and immunisation clinics state wide.

Annual vaccination is the most effective means to prevent influenza.
