We require all students to be appropriately immunised against the Influenza virus for clinical practice placement.

Evidence of immunity

An annual Influenza vaccination is available through your GP or the Student Health Services and is highly recommended for all students. Please be aware that this is a requirement for attendance at some health facilities.

Make an appointment to see your GP or Student Health Services to receive the vaccine. Even though the vaccine is not live, you may have some mild symptoms of the flu after vaccination.

Precautions: Influenza is highly contagious and can have life threatening consequences for some people. Whilst coughing and sneezing you are infectious. Remain away from the vulnerable for this period.
