FAQ's

What is influenza?
Influenza, or 'the flu', is a viral illness caused by the Influenza A and B viruses. it is highly infectious and spreads through infected droplets in the air after sneezing or coughing, or via hands which have been in contact with the virus. it should not be confused with the “common cold'.
Symptoms of influenza include sudden fever, muscle aches, sore throat and joint pains which can last up to 7 days. Complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia can also develop following onset of influenza in some people, and can result in hospitalisation and/or death in some at risk people such as those with chronic illnesses and the elderly.

Can I receive free influenza vaccine under the National Immunisation Program?
Free influenza vaccine is available for the following people who are at high risk of severe influenza or complications from influenza
-    People aged 65 years and over
-    All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 6 months and over
-    Pregnant women
-    People aged 6 months and over with one or more of the following conditions: heart disease; severe asthma; chronic lung condition; chronic illness requiring medical follow-up or hospitalisation in the past year; diseases of the nervous system; impaired immunity; or diabetes
in certain Australian states and territories community pharmacies can provide the free NIP influenza vaccine. 

If you are eligible for the free vaccine speak to your pharmacist. Eligible people get the vaccine for free, but your health care provider (for example, your GP) may charge a consultation fee for the visit.

What are the possible side effects from the influenza vaccine?
Common side effects following seasonal influenza vaccination include soreness, redness, itching pain or swelling at the injection site. Occasionally, people can develop a slight fever 1-2 days after the injection. These side effects are usually mild and resolve quickly without any treatment. if a high temperature above 38.5 degrees celcius persists, contact your doctor or seek medical assistance. The person who administers your vaccine will require you to stay for 15 minutes after your vaccination to monitor you for any immediate allergies or side effects.

Can I get influenza from the vaccination?
No you cannot. The vaccine does not contain live virus particles, only in activated particles, and will not cause influenza.

I received an influenza vaccine last year, do I still need to get one this year?
Yes. Each year, the flu vaccine will protect against the strains of flu virus most likely to circulate over the winter period in the Southern Hemisphere, as predicted by the World Health Organisation. The formulation of the vaccine changes each year. Your immunity will gradually decrease over time and vaccination is needed each year to ensure you continue to be protected. Vaccination is recommended in autumn to allow time for an immune response before influenza season starts.

I had the vaccine last year and I still got influenza, why?
There are many strains of the influenza virus and the strains within the vaccine each year are the 'most likely to circulate. If a strain that has not been in the vaccine in recent years circulates, you may still develop influenza, although it may be a less severe case if you have received an influenza vaccine.

Is it safe for me, as an adult, to get the influenza vaccine?
Yes. All seasonal influenza vaccines are safe and effective in adults, and meet the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration requirements for registration. They are especially recommended for those at high risk of severe influenza or complications from influenza.
If you have any concerns or questions, please speak to your GP, nurse or pharmacist.
