  1. If you have any concerns or questions about flu vaccination why not discuss them with your doctor? I would note that doctors normally follow advice from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI ). ATAGI consists of highly qualified medical and epidemiological expertise, and works within a strong framework of governance and independence under the Commonwealth’s National Health and Medical Research Council. There is no collusion at all between pharmaceutical companies and ATAGI or NHMRC in forming the advice ATAGI gives.
