The Organisation for Respiratory Health encourages people with respiratory diseases to get the influenza, pneumococcal, and coronavirus vaccines.

Worried about vaccines?

It is natural to be concerned about your own health and the health of your loved ones. In society, the purpose of vaccines is to ensure population immunity to protect as many citizens as possible against a serious disease, ensure the carrying capacity of health care services, and slow down the transmission and mutation rate of the virus. Population immunity also benefits individuals.

If you have any concerns about getting vaccinated, we recommend that you talk to a healthcare professional about the vaccine and its suitability for you.
