Patient Update - April 2021
2021 Flu Vaccination Programme
Getting your flu vaccine is one of the best things you can do to help stay well through the flu season. Flu can be anywhere and is easily spread through talking, coughing, and sneezing. Your best protection from the flu is getting the vaccine.
The 2021 Flu Vaccination rollout is upon us!
We have placed our order for Flu Vaccinations for our patients. We are governed by the Ministry of Health as to when we will receive the vaccines and how many vaccines we will receive at any given time. At this point in time, we are unable to book any patients until we have these dates confirmed.
The dates below are an indication of when we are likely to receive the vaccines and when we can start vaccinating.
The 2021 Influenza Immunisation Programme will commence on 14 April 2021, for people aged 65 and over. We will contact our over 65 year old patients when the vaccines arrive to see if they are wanting to receive the 2021 Flu Vaccine.
The programme for people aged under 65 will start in early May. The Ministry will confirm the date as soon as possible. Eligibility Criteria for a FREE Flu vaccination can be found at https://www.influenza.org.nz/eligibility-criteria
We will advertise dates as soon as these comes to hand.
The influenza vaccination programme runs to 31 December 2021. All groups can be immunised through to December.
