Flu Program 2019

Council offers the seasonal influenza vaccine at dedicated flu-only sessions and also at all public immunisation sessions across various locations and times within Maroondah.

Optimal protection against influenza occurs within the first three to four months following vaccination. Your vaccination timing should aim to achieve the highest level of protection during peak influenza season, usually from June to September in most parts of Australia. 

You can book online for the dedicated flu-only sessions.
