Twins Flutracking Study

This is a special Flutracking enrolment page only for twins and higher order multiples to report their weekly flu and coronavirus symptoms.

If this is not the case for you, please go to the regular join page instead.

This is a special FluTracking enrolment page developed exclusively for twins and higher order multiples of all ages - identical and fraternal - and parents of twins and HOMs to report if they’ve had symptoms of flu in the past week. Parents of junior twins can fill out the study on their twins’ behalf.

Please note: this survey is separate from Twins Research Australia’s COVID-19 TRACKERR study.

Your participation in the Twins FluTracking Survey is voluntary and you may refuse to answer questions or leave the survey at any time by clicking the available unsubscribe links.

If you decide to take part, you are consenting to share your data with the Australian FluTracking team as well as Twins Research Australia. TRA brings twins and researchers together for vital health research that benefits everyone. Enrolling in the Twins FluTracking Survey does not register you with TRA and you can participate in the survey without being a TRA member. If you would like to join Twins Research Australia or learn more about their research, please click here.

Please see below for more information about the FluTracking Survey and what it involves.

While you can join FluTracking as an individual twin/HOM, we’d appreciate you encouraging your twin or trio to join too. Your combined involvement provides special insights into the interplay between genes and environment in determining people’s experience of flu-like symptoms and whether they get the flu injection or not. This has great implications for improving vaccination campaigns, as it tells researchers whether members of the same family are more or less likely to get vaccinated.

If you’ve previously joined FluTracking as an individual and not a twin or HOM, please join up again here and you will be automatically reassigned to the Twins portal. You will receive an email to confirm your reassignment - it is essentially automated and very straightforward.

Thank you so much for your support!

About Flutracking

Flutracking is an online survey that asks if you have had fever or cough or other symptoms in the last week. The survey takes just 10-15 seconds to answer and is sent via email each week.

The Flutracking project is an international partnership of health agencies.

We use this data to help track the spread of influenza-like-illness and COVID-19 in Australia and provide early warning of potential outbreaks and monitor trends during pandemics.

Before you agree to volunteer for the Flutracking survey, you need to read and understand the following information.
