With the NSW Government announcing free flu vaccinations from June 1st 2022, UOW will transition to the free NSW health program, and will continue to encourage UOW staff and their families to book into either the Campus Pharmacy, a local pharmacy or your GP to access the 2022 influenza vaccination.
Pharmacies can now administer flu vaccines to children aged five years old, reduced from 10 years, making it easier for families to be vaccinated together.

In 2021, UOW will be continuing the roll out of two face to face Mental Health training courses:
Feedback has been very positive, with staff stating:
- ‘Great course - Very practical and useful’
- ‘Created a safe space to discuss and ask questions’
There are also two online mental health training programs that can be completed by staff at any time:
These training courses align with the UOW workplace mental health strategy, which can be found on the Well@Work Healthy Mind page.
