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.
