Flu Vaccinations

Protect yourself and your loved ones with the flu vaccine.

Being vaccinated with the current year's flu vaccine is your best protection from Influenza. As the flu can make you seriously unwell, we’re encouraging anyone over the age of six months to be vaccinated.

Getting your flu shot at a UFS Pharmacy
  • The flu injection is administered by an immunisation accredited pharmacist or nurse
  • Your Australian Immunisation Records (AIR) will be updated in the same way for vaccinations received at a UFS Pharmacy as it would be if you received the vaccination from a GP.
  • While children between the ages of 10 – 16 years are able to receive the flu vaccination at a UFS Pharmacy, we recommend that anxious children in this age range receive the vaccine from a GP. Children up to the age of 10 years need to visit their GP for the vaccine. Click here for information on flu vaccinations at UFS Medical for children.
  • If you’ve recently had COVID, you can still safely receive the flu vaccination, as long as you no longer have symptoms.
  • If you have not had COVID or a COVID booster recently, ask your pharmacist about your eligibility. It is safe to have a COVID booster at the same time as your flu vaccine.
  • The vaccines used at UFS are quadrivalent vaccines, to protect against four different flu viruses.
  • UFS offers two types of flu vaccine – cell-based (egg free) and standard. 
  • The cost of the standard flu vaccine is $24.80  for UFS Members or $31 for non UFS members. 
  • The cost of the cell-based flu vaccine is $39.80 for UFS Members or $49.75 for non UFS members. 
  • For patients eligible for the National Immunisation Program (NIP) flu vaccine, there is no charge for the supply or administration of the flu vaccine. To check eligibility for an NIP vaccine please click here or speak with your pharmacist.

Please contact your local UFS pharmacy to confirm availability or for further information on flu vaccines.
