Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Australian Government has put in place travel restrictions. Hence, the current information is that as of 20 March 2020 only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia. All travellers arriving in Australia must undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities such as a hotel, at their time of arrival.

These restrictions are under constant review as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, which will be updated according to the health advice from facilities all around Australia.

To prevent the flu it just needs a quadrivalent vaccines similar to all the preventable diseases.

If your immune system continues to become worse, you have side effects including the influenza virus or it may just be influenza season, which would need the influenza vaccine.
