The Australian Governments Department of Health suggest that individuals will have developed immunity within two to three weeks of vaccination. As influenza usually occurs from June, with the peak usually falling around August, vaccinating from April\May 2017 allows individuals to develop immunity before transmission of influenza is usually at its highest. There is new evidence that the effectiveness of the influenza vaccine wanes over time and its important to be protected when the flu is most common, around August.
