2022 Influenza immunisation season

With the easing of international and domestic public health measures arising from the COVID-19 global pandemic, a resurgence of influenza is expected in 2022, with the Australian community potentially more vulnerable to the virus this winter.

Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all people aged six months and over (unless contraindicated). The National Immunisation Program (NIP) and WA Health funds influenza vaccines for people most at risk

The public are being encouraged to start to book their appointments from mid-April to ensure the best protection at the peak of the season which is usually between June and September.

The WA Department of Health would like to provide a vaccine ordering update to immunisation providers:

If you have any queries, please contact vaccineorders@health.wa.gov.au.
