Flu Vaccine available from March 2021
2020 has been a year like no other, Covid-19 has demonstrated how terrifying a virus can be when there is no vaccine available to fight it. Influenza is a highly contagious and deadly virus just like Covid-19, but there is one huge difference, we have a vaccine to help fight against the Flu.
Please don’t underestimate the seriousness of Flu, in 2019 despite having the vaccine readily available many South Australians chose not to vaccinate and the results were horrific. With over 26,000 reported cases and 105 South Australian lives lost.

Influenza vaccination programs are an important, proactive investment in the health and wellbeing of your employees, your business and our community. As a long standing provider of workplace flu vaccinations, we have extensive experience in planning and delivering seasonal influenza vaccination programs. We have developed a robust National Influenza Program framework, based on existing clinical protocols, procedures and risk management systems, which allows us to effectively deliver influenza vaccinations to even the largest scale needs.
CHG nurses administer vaccines at your workplace.
For a fixed price per person, our qualified nursing team will travel to your workplace and undertake the necessary pre-screening and administration of the vaccine. CHG’s nurses are fully qualified Registered Nurses with immunisation training, CPR certificates and First Aid certificates. We will provide promotional material to promote participation in your onsite influenza vaccination program, and offer prizes for participation. Employees who miss out on the onsite vaccination day can be issued a ‘voucher’ to attend a CHG Clinic, invoiced back to the employer.
CHG is actively minimising risk to COVID-19, please ensure that you review our information (available here) which is being updated regularly in regards to the delivery of services and entry to our buildings.
