The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is our highest priority. This year, it’s particularly important to consider getting a flu vaccination to support your health and wellbeing. In conjunction with the UniSA Health Medical Clinic and Bupa, the University's wellbeing program is providing all staff the opportunity to book a free four (4) strain influenza (flu) vaccination.  

Influenza (flu) vaccination is recommended every year for any person 6 months of age and over to reduce the likelihood of contracting the flu.  As the strains of flu virus can change from year to year, receiving a flu vaccine every year provides the best protection against current flu virus strains.  The best time to vaccinate is in the autumn and it usually takes up to two weeks for the flu vaccine to provide protection, so we are encouraging all staff to consider booking an appointment as soon as possible.

We are at the end of our yearly flu clinics but if you would still like to get a flu jab, please call the UniSA Health Medical Clinic on 1300 172 996.

Call 1300 172 996 if you are feeling unwell, have recently travelled overseas or had contact with a potential or confirmed case of COVID-19.  If you’re concerned or in a vulnerable group, please don’t hesitate to contact the clinic.

Mt Gambier and Whyalla staff only – please contact your local administrator for a flu vaccination voucher to use at your local Terry White Chemist.

You will need to register your details through the website (TWC Voucher Holder Details ). Please note you’ll need your voucher code to complete the online registration. Following this, the TWC store closest to your nominated postcode will contact you to make arrangements for your vaccination.

If you would like to contact the Safety and Wellbeing team, please email Lindsay Sportmann at lindsay.sportmann@unisa.edu.au or hsim.safetywellbeing@unisa.edu.au

- The SA Health website offers a variety of posters to distribute in your local areas as a reminder to practice good hygiene.
