Update on Influenza Vaccine

Influenza Vaccines are arriving later this year


The influenza vaccine for 2015 Southern Hemisphere influenza season includes two new strains based upon recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the strains most likely to spread and cause illness in people this season.

Delivery of the funded influenza vaccines will be later in 2015 than in previous years due to the change in strains and the complex manufacturing process which will take longer than usual.


Continuous supply of vaccine is expected to be available by AprilĀ
