Where can I get the vaccination?

Answer: 

Eligible people can get a free vaccination from their General Practice, and it is usually the practice nurse who administers the vaccine.  The vaccine is injected into the upper arm.  For children 6 months to 15 months, it is injected into the upper thigh.

From 2017 some community pharmacies provide free influenza vaccinations to:

  • individuals aged 65 years and older
  • pregnant women (any trimester) 

Those not eligible for free vaccination: influenza vaccination is available from:

Your local General Practice
Accident and Medical Center
Workplace/Occupational Health Service
Some Pharmacies

Please contact your provider regarding vaccination charges.
