Tip of the week
Published: Wednesday 18th March 2015
ACU's annual influenza vaccination program aims to help you maintain your health and wellbeing, especially with the onset of the colder weather and impending flu season. ACU encourages all staff to participate in the program. However, participation is entirely voluntary.
The Southern Hemisphere seasonal influenza vaccine provides protection against swine flu and two seasonal strains, as recommended by the World Health Organization. Please read the Q&A brochure, which provides valuable information about the vaccination.
You are encouraged to book an appointment at the earliest opportunity to guarantee an appointment, as there are limited spaces.
The vaccinations and online booking system is administered by Vitality Works. To book an appointment, please visit the Vitality Works website and follow the instructions provided. If you experience any problems booking your appointment please call Vitality Works on 1300 662 328.
