This resource package consists of a poster and a brochure. The poster seeks to promote the availability of free flu shots among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who are over 15 years of age, or children six months or older with an existing medical condition.
The brochure aims to raise awareness among Indigenous peoples about the flu by providing information on the signs and symptoms of the flu, its health effects, and the importance of vaccination.
