FREE flu shots at GP clinics and pharmacies from 6 June

The Tasmanian Government will provide flu vaccinations for free across GP clinics and Pharmacies for 4 weeks from this Monday, 6 June 2022.

From 6 June 2002, the Tasmanian Government will cover the vaccine and related administration costs at GPs and pharmacies.  The usual Medicare arrangements will apply for the GP consultation.

If you haven’t yet received your flu shot, speak to your GP healthcare provider or local pharmacy to make an appointment now.

And as a reminder, Free Flu vaccine will be available for:

  • 10 years and older at participating pharmacies
  • 6 months and older at GPs and community clinics

And don’t forget if you are due for a COVID-19 booster dose, you can have this at the same time, or on the same day, as your flu shot.
