Getting immunised

The Australian Government recommends everyone from six months old wishing to protect themselves against the flu should get immunised.

Vaccination is a safe and effective way to protect yourself from flu; people who get vaccinated are at lower risk of getting an infection (and developing serious disease) than those who do not.

Bastian Seidel, President of Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP), said it's important for people to get vaccinated whether they are healthy or at high risk.

"Every year thousands of Australians are dying or being admitted to hospital for complications of the flu. That is entirely avoidable if people have their flu vaccination," Dr Seidel said.

Getting a flu shot also means you help to protect other people, including those who are too sick or too young to be vaccinated, as well as vulnerable groups such as babies, people over 65 years and pregnant women.

The more people who are vaccinated in the community, the less likely the flu will spread.
