It is more important than ever that members of the La Trobe community do everything possible to take care of their health.
That’s why La Trobe is partnering with Medibank Private to offer students a free influenza vaccination.
While the flu vaccine won’t combat COVID-19, it will help to reduce the severity and spread of seasonal influenza, which can lower a person’s immunity and make them susceptible to other illnesses.
The vaccinations will take place at all La Trobe Campuses during May, except the City Campus.
City students are able to book in to receive a vaccination at Bundoora.
The number of vaccinations is limited, so you are encouraged to register at this link as soon as possible. Bookings for each Campus are now open.
Visit the La Trobe Student Vaccination webpage to access the registration links and information regarding available dates and times, room locations and social physical protocols for your Campus.
Please note: the appropriate physical distancing measures will be enforced during the vaccination program.
The Victorian Government has confirmed that vaccinations are a valid reason to leave home.
If you are considered at high-risk for influenza, it is recommended you speak to your GP about vaccinations as soon as possible.
