Travelling abroad over summer? You may want to get protected from the Northern Hemisphere flu.
The flu season runs from October to May in popular regions such as Europe, Asia and America.
We strongly recommend you get adequately protected before you travel. This is especially the case if you’re likely to be among large tourist groups, cruises or mass gatherings.
Those who have received a current flu vaccine in Australia can get a second vaccine dose within the same 12 months.
Although the current formulation for use in the Northern Hemisphere may be preferred, it’s generally not available in Australia. Receiving another dose of our local vaccine is perfectly acceptable.
