Getting your flu vaccine is one of the best things you, your whanau and your workplace can do to help stay well through the flu season. Flu can be anywhere and the best protection is a flu vaccine.
All our medical centres can help you and many have Flu Clinics over the next couple of months where no appointment is needed. It is best to contact your local centre to find out their Flu Clinic dates and times.
The Ministry of Health advised the 2020 Flu Vaccination programme will start earlier, from 18 March 2020 for health workers and eligible people. If you're over 65 years, pregnant or have a chronic condition you may be eligible. There is plenty of detailed information about eligibility for free vaccinations on this website. From 13 April 2020 the vaccines will be available for the NZ public.
NOTE: Please understand and be aware that many NZ medical centres including some of ours, are yet to receive vaccine supplies. The Ministry of Health are working quickly through their vaccine distribution process. We will keep you updated as we receive new information.
Naturally, there is a lot of interest and phone calls from our patients to find out more and to book vaccination appointments. We appreciate your patience as we work through receiving and managing supplies and begin vaccinating.
