Immunisation program

For health practitioners

The PHN supports general practice to deliver quality vaccination services to improve immunisation coverage rates in our region.

2021 influenza vaccinations
Annual vaccination is the most important measure to prevent influenza and its complications and is recommended for all people aged 6 months and over.
Free vaccines will be available to eligible Queenslanders from mid-April.
Advice on influenza and COVID 19 vaccination
Before administering an influenza vaccine, it is important to check the AIR to see if a COVID-19 vaccination may have been administered and if so, when it was administered. The preferred minimum interval between a seasonal influenza vaccine and a COVID-19 vaccine is 14 days.

It is mandatory to report all:
  • COVID-19 vaccinations from 17 February 2021
