It is recommended that people aged 65 years and over be vaccinated against pneumococcal and influenza diseases. 

All seniors 65 years and over, including international and interstate visitors, can use Council's free community immunisation clinics for these vaccines.

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 15 years and older
  • all individuals aged 6 months of age and older with medical conditions predisposing them to severe influenza.

For all other people aged from six months who are ineligible for a free influenza vaccine can purchase the vaccine from any Council community immunisation clinic for $19.40.
