2022 DoH Influenza vaccination resources

A range of clinical and program support material to support health professionals and vaccination providers relating to the 2022 influenza vaccination program are now available.

Key points:

  • 2022 influenza vaccines for the National Immunisation Program will become available from 4 April through a range of providers including GPs, community health clinics and eligible pharmacies, subject to local supply arrangements in states and territories.
  • The public are encouraged to start to book their appointments from mid-April to ensure the best protection at the peak of the season which is usually between June and September.
  • Influenza vaccination is particularly important this year. With the easing of international and domestic public health measures arising from the COVID-19 global pandemic, a resurgence of influenza is expected in 2022, with the Australian community potentially more vulnerable to the virus this winter.
  • Influenza vaccines can be safely co-administered (on the same day) with COVID-19 vaccines.
  • The best protection this winter is for people to receive an influenza vaccine and be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 including any recommended booster doses.
