2017 GP Guide


Influenza is a potentially fatal disease. In Australia influenza and its complications is estimated to cause between 1,500 and 3,500 deaths and more than 18,000 hospitalisations per year.

There has been good progress in vaccinating older Australians against influenza but there is room for significant improvement in protecting younger people considered at risk of complication.

GPs have a vital role in prompting patients to consider the benefits of influenza vaccination and addressing concerns about efficacy and safety.
