Clinician alert: High rates of influenza across North Queensland

Tropical Public Health Services (Cairns) and Townsville Public Health Unit have requested we distribute this letter to clinicians in the region.

We have been seeing high rates of influenza A throughout North Queensland, with resulting strain on the healthcare system.

This is concerning as few people are vaccinated for current flu strains at this time of year.

Funded by the Queensland government, the 2024 Free Influenza Vaccination Program has now commenced. The Program will conclude on 30 September 2024.
