Flu Shot

With all this beautiful weather it’s difficult to think about the flu, however, it’s time to start booking flu vaccinations for the 2017 flu season. Each year in Australia the flu causes an estimated 1,500,000 sick days and vaccination is a great way to reduce sick days in the workplace.

For 2017 vaccinations the World Health Organisation is no longer recommending the Trivalent (3 strain) vaccine and we are only offering the Quadrivalent (4 strain) vaccine. We are offering the same price for this vaccine as last year with no increase.

Our price is inclusive of equipment, metropolitan Melbourne travel, booking and setup costs and we can cater for shift workers as well if needed.

The Australian made 4 strain vaccine, recommended by the World Health Organisation for 2017 covers the following four viruses;

  • an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
  • an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus;
  • a B/Brisbane/60/2008- like virus; and
  • a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus.

We expect to have the vaccine available in early March and we also expect this will be a popular time for bookings as this is the optimum time for receiving the flu vaccination. If you would like to make a booking we urge you to do this now to secure a preferred date and time while stock is available.

2016 Flu Vaccinations – Important Information

Posted by | Nabenet Health | No Comments

There are several changes to the upcoming flu vaccination season which we can assist you with when offering vaccinations to your staff. Traditionally there has been a trivalent influenza vaccine available for use by employers, the government and doctors, however, in 2016 there will be the additional option of a quadrivalent influenza vaccine.

What is the difference between the two vaccines?

The quadrivalent vaccine offers protection against the four most common circulating influenza virus strains, and, the trivalent vaccine offers protection against three strains – two strains of influenza A, which usually leads to more cases of the flu and one of influenza B, which is less common but also circulates in the community. The quadrivalent vaccine will include protection against a second strain of influenza B.

Most employers understand the need to offer the vaccination to staff to reduce absenteeism which can triple in winter as a result of influenza and colds. The obvious choice would seem to be the quadrivalent, however, it comes at a price! The quadrivalent is likely to be $7-$9 more expensive per vaccine and at this stage estimates are that it will arrive later in the season than its counterpart, the trivalent, which should be available in March.

As an employer you will have the choice of what vaccine to offer staff. Early indications from employers are that many will offer the trivalent vaccine as it contains two new strains from the 2015 vaccine and historically this vaccine has matched the majority of circulating viruses in Australia. The trivalent is Australian made and will also be more cost effective and is likely to be available earlier to offer protection for longer. In fact, last year, the trivalent vaccine used by Nabenet Health was available 8 weeks ahead of foreign made quadrivalent vaccine.
