Each year at UNE, countless students are affected by the flu which has a direct impact on the many aspects of life on campus, not just academic.
To combat this, in 2019 UNE is providing flu vaccinations to UNE students, completely free.
If you’ve never had a flu vaccination before, simply bring along the completed form below and the nurses on-site will check that you’ll be fine to proceed.
If you have had a vaccination, it’s a very simple and quick process – just turn up and roll up your sleeve!

Vaccines covered by the National Immunisation Program are free for people who are eligible. See the NIP Schedule to find out which vaccines you or your family are eligible to receive. Eligible people get the vaccine for free, but your health care provider (for example, your doctor) may charge a consultation fee for the visit. You can check this when you make your appointment.
