Workplace Flu Program

Council's Immunisation Service offers influenza vaccinations to eligible Maroondah businesses.

What is influenza?

Influenza, also known as the flu, is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications, including pneumonia.

The flu spreads from person to person via saliva, sneezing, coughing and runny noses. People are usually contagious before their symptoms begin and for up to one week after symptoms start.

The influenza vaccine is currently the most effective measure available to prevent catching the flu.
