Influenza Vaccine Poster

  • We will be sending copies of this guide to member services in the coming weeks.

Influenza Toolkit

  • The AH&MRC has updated the Seasonal Influenza Toolkit which provides guidance on how to manage influenza in an ACCHO environment.
  • This toolkit will provide information on the signs of symptoms of influenza, who is most at risk from influenza, how influenza is spread and treatments for influenza as well as other information, including the appropriate use of PPE.
