WA Government launches Free Jab June campaign

Free influenza vaccines are available for Western Australians during June, after the WA Government announced on 29 May 2022 the expansion of subsidised vaccinations as an extra incentive for people to protect themselves and those vulnerable against influenza.

State-run COVID-19 vaccination clinics offer influenza vaccinations for anyone aged 5 years and older on a ‘walk in’ basis. Alternatively, the WA Government is offering a reimbursement for influenza vaccinations administered by general practice, community pharmacies and other immunisation providers interested in participating.

Visit the WA Health website for more information on the program and how to register.
