The Queensland Government will cover the full cost of influenza vaccination for patients not eligible under the National Immunisation Program, starting from 22 July, in response to a severe flu season. 

The state has recorded more than 51,400 cases of influenza so far this year compared with fewer than 44,450 cases across 2022.
