For 2024 there are 2 options for flu vaccines :

For 13 years to 64years: 

Option 1: Standard Flu vaccine (Influvac Tetra)- this is the usual flu vaccine that gives good protection. The government funds this one for certain people. If you have a work voucher, you will receive this vaccine. You can receive this vaccine unfunded as well.

Option 2: Premium flu vaccine (Flucelvax Quad)- this is 5% to 19% more effective than the standard one. This is made differently from Influvac Tetra and the strains more closely match the current circulating flu viruses. Not funded

For 65 years and up:

Option 1: Standard flu vaccine (Influvac Tetra) that gives good protection. FUNDED

Option 2: Premium flu vaccine (Fluad Quad). Not funded. This gives you better and longer protection than the standard flu vaccine. FLUAD Quad has an extra ingredient (adjuvant), which helps people 65 years and over produce more antibodies against the flu viruses.

You do not need to specify which flu vaccine choice when booking, but please bear with us if your first choice is not available due to demand or supply issues. Our crystal ball is working hard to predict demand.


Walk ins may be possible but are not guaranteed as bookings are prioritised.
