Frequently Asked Questions

What is the flu vaccine?

The immunisation vaccine uses the body’s natural defence mechanism to build resistance to infection. The vaccine contains inactive particles that stimulate the immune system to help develop a resistance to the flu.

Why should I consider getting the flu vaccine?

Vaccination is the best defence against the flu. The flu vaccine stimulates the body to make antibodies, which fight the influenza virus. If you have been vaccinated, when you encounter the virus, your body is better prepared to destroy it, which helps prevent getting the flu.

Can I get the flu vaccine and still get the flu?

Vaccine is not 100% effective but evidence shows that the flu vaccine provides good protection in healthy people.

Is the vaccine safe?

The vaccine meets Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration requirements for safety and effectiveness. It has been available for over 50 years.

How soon the flu vaccine starts to work?
The body creates antibodies between three and fourteen days after the vaccination.
When is the best time to get vaccinated?

The flu vaccination is designed to protect you against the peak winter flu season which happens between June to September in most parts of Australia. The best protection against influenza occurs with the first 3 to 4 months following vaccinations. The best time for you to be vaccinated against the flu is Autumn before the flu season starts.

Are there any side effects?

The skin around the vaccination site may become red or sore, or you may also experience itching, bruising or mild swelling. Some people may also experience a mild fever, muscle aches, headache, or swelling of the lymph gland (under the armpit). These symptoms usually resolve within two days but if you have any concerns, please speak to your Pharmacist or Healthcare Professional.

In some instances, there may also be a risk of other effects such as fainting. If you have Guillain-Barre syndrome, there may be a risk of neurological symptoms. If either of these are relevant for you, please inform your Pharmacist before administering your vaccine.

What if I am over 65+?

People aged 65 years and older will now receive a newly registered adjuvanted QIV, Fluad Quad, specifically designed to provide increased protection by creating a greater immune response. We are waiting for the Department of Health’s confirmation on the National Immunisation Program (NIP) Program availability in-pharmacy. In the meantime, please contact your GP for details and eligibility.
