RCPA says Australians are more vulnerable to Influenza in 2022
26 April, 2022

Due to a low uptake of influenza vaccines in 2021, and the very low circulation of influenza virus globally over the past two years, the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) warns that Australians are more likely to be vulnerable to influenza this year. Despite vaccination fatigue, the RCPA recommends anyone aged six months and over to get the influenza vaccine in order to prevent widespread illness and even deaths from influenza. Those who have not received their COVID-19 vaccine or are eligible for a booster or “winter dose” are encouraged to get both vaccines at the same time.
