It's that time of year again. To protect our people and our community, Monash Health is providing free vaccinations for all staff, patients and their immediate families to prevent the spread of influenza this flu season.

Last year, 229,579 Australians suffered from laboratory confirmed influenza, with many more cases going undiagnosed. 91 per cent of deaths last year from influenza occurred in people aged 65 years and over. By getting your flu vacc, you’ll be protecting yourself and those around you.

Monash Health staff, as well as patients and their immediate families, can receive the vaccination for free at Monash Immunisation from 8.30am - 3.45pm, Monday - Friday. Members of the public can also access the vaccination here for $20.
