Important Information: Influenza (flu) Vaccination for all UniSA Staff in 2023

Protect yourself and your community this flu season


As part of our ongoing commitment to help improve the health and wellbeing of our staff, the University’s Wellbeing program in conjunction with UniSA Health and BUPA is providing all staff (including casual staff) the opportunity to book a free four (4) strain influenza (flu) vaccination.

The best time to vaccinate is in the autumn as 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.  All staff will be provided with a flu vaccination certificate, and all flu vaccines will also be recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.

People aged 65 and over are recommended by SA Health to receive a high-dose seasonal influenza vaccine (Fluad Quad). The Fluad Quad doses are allocated by the government direct to the person’s GP and as such, staff 65 years or over are encouraged to book your free flu vaccination with your regular GP who can provide all information relating to Fluad Quad and your allocated dose.

More information on the Influenza (flu) vaccination is available on the SA Health website.

To access your free four (4) strain influenza (flu) vaccination as part of the University’s Wellbeing program, you will need to book online by visiting the UniSA Health Medical Clinic website and follow the prompts for STAFF flu shot bookings and choose your preferred location.
