Flu Vaccines Available for Funded and Non-Funded Patients

The Flu Vaccine is now available for all patients.  There is a cost for non-funded vaccines.  Please check with reception when booking.

Please phone reception on 03 477 4335 to book into one of our Flu Vaccine Clinics.

To see whether you are eligible for a funded vaccine:  https://www.influenza.org.nz/eligibility-criteria

 

Also, please note that the Covid-19 vaccine programme is being managed by the Ministry of Health and we have not received instructions as to our involvement at this stage.  However, we do know that there is a 14-day gap required between having the flu vaccine and your first Covid-19 vaccine. So, if you have not been notified to go for a Covid vaccine, we recommend you act quickly to have your flu vaccine as soon as possible. Similarly, if you choose to have the Covid-19 vaccine before the flu vaccine you will need to wait 14 days after the second Covid-19 vaccine before you can have the flu vaccine.
