Australian Vaccine Services (AVS) is one of Australia's leading specialist corporate flu vaccination services and employee wellbeing providers. AVS completed over 60,000 vaccinations across more than 1,400 locations nationally in 2017. Each year we work with a range of clients from Federal, State and Local Government departments, large, medium and small businesses, Universities, Councils, and non-for-profits.
We offer corporate flu vaccination services in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide, Tasmania and many regional locations for your convenience.
When flu season occurs, businesses and other organisations can suffer huge losses in terms of unplanned absences, sick leave, and reduced productivity. For those looking for strategies to combat these losses, as well as demonstrating a commitment to employee health and wellbeing, flu vaccination services can deliver a real and measurable impact.
Important News for 2018
Following the decision by the Government to use the Quadrivalent (four strain) vaccine in 2016 for the first time, the government decided to use the Quadrivalent vaccine again as part of the national program for the 2017 and has continued with this decision for 2018.
The 2018 Southern Hemisphere flu vaccination strain recommendations have been put forward by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The WHO has recommended that the following composition be used in the Southern Hemisphere Quadrivalent vaccine in 2018:
This represents one strain change to the 2017 Southern Hemisphere Quadrivalent vaccine strain. For a full breakdown of the WHO report plus use this link. AVS will be working with all manufacturers in 2018 to ensure that we have a guaranteed supply for our clients. Based on previous years, current estimates for availability of the vaccine in Australia is 2nd - 3rd week of March. With Easter taking place the last weekend in March/first week of April, we highly recommend booking early to ensure you can receive the earliest vaccination slots available and the best preseason pricing.
Just like in 2017, in 2018 there will only be Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccines available in Australia. This is the second time that the Trivalent Vaccine will not be available to the Australian market (either public or private) and is likely to be the ongoing tend moving forward. Unlike 2016 where the private market (i.e. AVS) only had access to one manufacturer of the Quadrivalent vaccine, in 2018 there are 3 pharmaceutical companies that will be providing the Quadrivalent vaccine to the Australian market; Seqirus (Australian Made vaccine - former CSL), GSK & Sanofi.
