The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has released updated advice for influenza vaccination in 2021.

Due to international borders reopening from November 2021, and greater population movement, seasonal influenza virus is expected to emerge and circulate in Australia outside of the usual influenza season.

Influenza vaccination is recommended for anyone aged 6 months and over who has not had an influenza vaccine this year. In particular, it is strongly recommended for those in higher risk groups.
