It is estimated NSW could save about 500 lives and up to $1.3 billion every year if authorities boosted influenza vaccination rates for people aged under 65.

A NSW Productivity Commission report, released on Friday, found at least $500 million could be saved statewide annually if 55% of under 65s had a yearly flu shot.
