The University of Queensland offers full time and part time staff free Influenza Vaccination Clinics.
The Staff Flu program starts in late March. The management of the program will be conducted by UQ Occupational Health & Safety.
More information about the Staff Flu program will be available on the UQ Wellness website
When booking an appointment, please ensure that you identify that you are a UQ staff member for flu vaccination program.
As an International Student, it is a condition of your student visa that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your student visa in Australia.
OSHC coverage, including out of hospital and in hospital medical services, are detailed in the policy document.
However it is important to understand that for non-emergency hospital care, including maternity (pregnancy) services, access to some medical services in some public hospital may be limited.
This means that public hospital services for non-emergency care, including maternity (pregnancy) services, may not be available to you when you need them. In these instances, you may be required to access medical services through a private hospital. Private hospital health care will typically incur some out of pocket costs that are not covered by your Overseas Student Health Cover policy and will be your responsibility.
Please note that for maternity (pregnancy) services, these out of pocket costs could range from $4,000 to $10,000, depending on the level of maternity service/care provided.
Therefore, if you are considering falling pregnant whilst studying in Australia, it is recommended that you discuss this further with your GP and OSHC health provider to look at the services available and the anticipated costs involved.
Learn more about our services, costs, making an appointment, requirements before your visit and much more.
