COVID-19 vaccination – Video – Protect yourself against COVID-19 and influenza this winter

This video explains that this winter your best protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and influenza is vaccination.


This winter, more people are getting sick with COVID-19 and influenza.

Your best protection against severe illness is vaccination.

These viruses can be more dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn babies.

Getting vaccinated will protect mum and the baby and help prevent severe illness if you do get sick.

It's safe and easy to get COVID-19 and influenza vaccines at the same time.

You can also slow the spread of viruses by washing your hands regularly, covering your mouth with your elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze, wearing the mask correctly and staying home when you're sick.

To book a vaccine appointment contact your doctor or participating pharmacy.
