Being vaccinated is the best way to protect healthcare workers and patients, especially those who are vulnerable, from getting influenza
After two years of closed borders, there is an increased risk that the introduction of influenza into our community will result in significant strain on the healthcare system.
As of April 2022, Victorian healthcare staff are required to be vaccinated against influenza if they work in:
- public and private hospitals
- public health services
- ambulance services
- public residential aged care services.
If you are a healthcare worker in any of the above settings, you must be vaccinated against influenza by 15 August 2022 and annually by 15 August thereafter. For more information, you can find out information HERE.
