Flu Vaccination Program

MaPS 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.

MOP(S) Act employees can access a flu vaccination under this program by reimbursement for the cost of the vaccine administered by a medical practitioner or health professional.

Please note, whilst this will not provide immunity against coronavirus, vaccination against respiratory illnesses is highly recommended to protect your health. For further information about the COVID-19 vaccine, please see COVID-19 Vaccination.

For Parliament House, Canberra

It is important that MOP(S) Act employees note that reimbursement will be made for the cost of the vaccine only. MaPS will not reimburse for additional costs incurred for any medical consultation or administration related to the vaccination, or cover any travel expenses related to attendance for the vaccination.
