Yes. However, people aged 65 and over should receive the enhanced quadrivalent vaccine (Fluad® Quad) over other standard quadrivalent vaccines. The enhanced vaccine has been specially formulated to create a greater immune response amongst the elderly, who are known to have a weaker response to immunisation. However, if Fluad® Quad is not available people aged 65 years and over can safely receive other standard quadrivalent influenza vaccines.
As our onsite flu program (or any other employer initiated flu program) is not part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP), we do not stock Fluad® Quad recommended for people aged over 65. We do identify your staff who are over 65 and encourage them to see their GP for this vaccine; however, we will offer the quadrivalent flu vaccine on request from an individual even if they are over 65.
