Flu vaccination program 2023
Making safe and effective flu vaccines available to all healthcare workers is a key priority of CALHN. CALHN has a duty of care to ensure that health care workers contribute to a safe environment for patients, staff and visitors. It is a requirement that all health care workers comply with the SA Health Occupational assessment screening and vaccination policy.
CALHN flu vaccination hubs are now closed. CALHN staff can still receive their free flu vaccination at TerryWhite Chemart by claiming an online voucher.
For more information, email Health.CALHNClinicalWorkerHealthService@sa.gov.au.
What do I do if I’m over 65?
For staff aged 65 years and over, an ‘enhanced’ quadrivalent flu vaccine is recommended for this group as they are at greater risk of serious complications from flu and do not respond to the flu vaccine as well as younger adults.
You can receive this vaccination at a CALHN site.
I have already been vaccinated; what do I do?
If you have vaccinated elsewhere, please complete the vaccinated elsewhere form.
I refuse to vaccinate; what do I do?
Can I get the flu vaccination on the same day as a COVID vaccination?
Yes, all COVID-19 vaccines can be co-administered (given on the same day) with a flu vaccine. See the ATAGI Statement on influenza vaccines in 2023.
Flu vaccination forms
If you have vaccinated elsewhere, or refuse to vaccinate, please make sure to complete the relevant form and email it to your coordinator.
