Victorian Flu Vaccine Supply Exhausted

The flu vaccine will be only be available in Victoria for children, the sick and the elderly as unprecedented demand has led to a nationwide shortage.

Following 2017's horror flu season more than 1.5 million people have been vaccinated in Victoria, and supplies are now exhausted, the health department says.

"Remaining vaccine now needs to be conserved for those who are at greatest need," Victoria's chief health officer Charles Guest told reporters on Friday.
