M&PS provides an annual flu vaccination program for all Members of Parliament (Staff) Act 1984 (MOP(S) Act) employees. Participation in the flu vaccination program is optional and the decision to be vaccinated rests with each employee.
There are two ways a MOP(S) Act employee can access a flu vaccination under this program:
- through a clinic at Parliament House, Canberra, or
- by reimbursement for the cost of the vaccine administered by a medical practitioner or health professional.
Parliament House, Canberra
The 2018 vaccination program at Parliament House is now closed. If you were unable to attend, please contact DPS-WHS@aph.gov.au to discuss.
M&PS will reimburse the cost of the flu vaccine, up to $20.00, which is the indicative retail price of the vaccine.
MOP(S) Act employees seeking reimbursement must:
- complete a Flu Vaccination Program Consent Form
- scan and email the signed form and a receipt clearly indicating the cost of the vaccine to MOPSWHS@finance.gov.au.
If you have any questions about the flu vaccination program please contact the Staff Help Desk.
