Over 65 Flu Vaccine
Friday, April 9, 2021
We have received flu vaccine for those aged 65 years and over, and can take bookings for appointments from April 14 onwards. We will not receive vaccines for under 65’s until May (including those with chronic conditions) so cannot take bookings for other age groups at this stage. Vaccine delivery is unfortunately out of our control.
If you’re 65yrs or older please call us on 03 477 4335 to book your appointment.
For more information on the flu vaccine, and whether you are entitled to have it FREE, please visit the Fight Flu website
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.
