The anti-viral drug Tamiflu will be rationed as supplies of the drug are running out.
The global outbreak of Mexican swine flu has seen a 10-fold increase in prescriptions for the drug in Australia, even though there have not been any confirmed cases of the disease.
In a normal flu season, about 10,000 courses of the drug are sold.
But in the last week alone, 120,000 courses of the drug were sold and many pharmacies have run out.
