Influenza Alert

The Queensland Department of Health has advised that during 2017, there were over 56,000 cases of confirmed influenza in Queensland, of which over 10,000 were in children under 10 years of age. The Queensland Department of Health is now offering a free influenza vaccine to children aged 6 months to less than five years. Schools should encourage staff and students to be vaccinated for influenza as well as promote other prevention and control measures.

Schools have been requested by authorities to help prevent the flu spreading by:

  • promoting flu vaccination to staff and parents
  • encouraging staff and children with flu-like symptoms to stay at home
  • sending home staff and children who arrive with flu-like symptoms
  • encouraging children, staff and visitors to cover coughs and sneezes having tissues and rubbish bins readily available and ensuring used tissues are disposed of immediately

  • cleaning their facility and resources regularly
