The Newspoll Omnibus is a weekly multi-client telephone survey of 1,200 Australian adults. In June 2014, the Department of Health commissioned a Newspoll survey on adults receiving the seasonal influenza vaccine. The survey was conducted from 13 to 15 June 2014.

The main findings of the summary report included:

  • nearly 2 in 5 Australian adults had had a flu shot that season
  • of those who had not had a shot, there was little expectation that they would get a shot in that season
  • the great majority (69%) of those who had had a flu vaccination got them through their doctor or at a GP clinic
  • two-thirds (65%) of the people who had had a flu shot felt that they had got it for free.

The report also includes the survey questions.
