Summer flu vaccination


If you are travelling to Northern Hemisphere countries during the holiday period, make sure you avoid their winter flu.

It’s safe to get the flu vaccination again if you have already had a flu shot this winter in Australia. Your winter flu shot is no longer effective, as it only provides protection for up to six months.


Please talk to your GP or travel clinic before you travel. Get your flu shot at least two weeks before heading overseas as it it takes two weeks for your body to develop antibodies to provide protection..
