Free Flu Vaccine in June

The Flu Vaccine for 2022 is now available at Criniti Medical Practice.

A free flu jab will be available to all NSW residents in a month-long blitz from 1 June to 30 June 2022 to this year’s expected severe influenza season. With a sharp increase in flu cases already, the NSW Government will fund flu vaccinations at general practice and pharmacies for those who are not otherwise eligible for free flu vaccinations under the NIP.

COVID-19 winter boosters are also recommended for specific population groups (see expanded ATAGI recommendations).

Under the latest government guidelines, both flu and COVID-19 vaccines can be administered at the same time.
