EVERY Ipswich resident will be able to line up for a free flu vaccination after the State Govt reacted to the serious spike in influenza cases.
Free influenza vaccinations will be available from this Saturday through to the end of August at GPs and pharmacies throughout the district.
The Palaszczuk Government will cover the cost, which is estimated to cost between $5 – 10 million, for providing the vaccination to all Queenslanders, many of whom do not fall within the federally funded national immunisation program.
Influenza cases this year have reached more than 51,426 cases, compared to last year where 44,438 cases were record for the entire year.
There are no changes for people already eligible under the National Immunisation program.
