Free Flu Vaccination for Children 6 Months to Under 5 Years

Free flu vaccination for children.

All children in South Australia aged 6 months to under 5 years are eligible for a free flu vaccination.

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a viral infection which causes fever, headache, muscle aches and pains, runny nose, sore throat, and coughing. In children it can also cause vomiting and diarrhoea.


Flu spreads very easily and quickly between people through coughing, talking, sneezing and contact with contaminated hands, tissues, and other infected items. Babies and young children are at a greater risk of becoming really sick and can end up in hospital and require intensive medical support.

The best way to protect your child from the flu is with a flu vaccination each year. Speak with your GP about getting your young children vaccinated against the flu.
