No, it is never too late to take the flu vaccination. In recent years the peak flu season has been between June and August. Although more prevalent in winter you can catch the flu all year round. Australian guidelines recommend that everyone over 6 months of age should receive the fl u vaccination to protect themselves, but also to prevent passing on the flu to high-risk groups, including those over 65 and people with respiratory conditions such as asthma.

Although there have been fewer flu cases this year, the flu virus is still in the community. It is important to protect yourselves and to also prevent passing the flu to those who may be high risk. This year with the COVID-19 pandemic it is even more important to get the flu vaccine, as it can reduce the chance of being infected simultaneously with the flu and COVID-19.

It is recommended you have a flu vaccination each year to protect you from new strains of the influenza virus.
