There was exceptionally high demand for the flu vaccine across Australia in 2020 with over 2.7 million doses of National Immunisation Program (NIP) flu vaccine distributed in NSW alone. NSW Health has developed this Toolkit to assist providers with managing roll-out and implementation of their flu vaccination program in 2021.
Flu vaccines are also available on the private market. If you are a pharmacy in NSW, flu vaccines must be ordered through your wholesaler. Patients who are eligible to receive flu vaccine through the NIP should be encouraged to see their doctor.
