COVID19 and Flu Vaccination: What you need to know

Flu vaccinations have arrived. We have flu clinics available now to anyone over 65. These are bookable online via ManagemyHealth or by phoning the surgery. As usual Flu vaccinations will be done here at Nelson Family Medicine. We will be able to offer vaccination to other patients eligible for funded Fluvax soon after 17th May. If you get the Flu vaccination as soon as you can it will help you get your first Covid vaccine as soon as possible too, because there must be two weeks between the Flu vaccination and Covid Vaccination.

Covid Vaccination is likely to be available to the over 65 age group in May. Covid Vaccinations will be done in special purpose clinics. The closest one to us is 16 Paru Paru Road. We will not be able to book these clinics for you. There will be an 0800 number available for that. NZ is using the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine. We benefit from the fact that priority was given to countries with high rates of transmission and so there is more data on the safety and efficacy of the millions of doses given so far.

Vaccination is free for all New Zealanders. If you have doubts or questions talk to our doctors and nurses. If you need information about the Covid vaccination there is an Immunisation Advisory Centre of NZ website you may like to visit or just use the button below to view.

If you have a need for early Covid vaccination on compassionate grounds the Ministry of Health (MOH) has a process to apply for this or just use the button below to view.

If you prefer to have your questions answered by a person you can ring the Healthline number 0800 611 116.

Vaccination is an important tool to keep us safe but we mustn't forget all the other measures we have been doing this past year.
