Great news, we are starting our 2021 flu immunisations on Wednesday 14 April. Flu vaccines save lives and with borders starting to open we are expecting to have the flu in our community in 2021.
At this time, we are only being supplied vaccines for people who are 65 or older and these immunisations are all fully funded. These vaccines are specifically manufactured to support those who are 65 or older.
We do not yet have a confirmed date for any other funded or unfunded vaccines, other than they are expected at some point in May. The availability of these vaccines is centrally managed across the whole country so we will provide an update as soon as we know more.
To assist with space we will be offering flu immunisations at our Vaccination Pop-up at Rugby House, 100 Molesworth Street Thorndon. This will only be operating at certain times for booked immunisations, so please call us on 04 473 5181 to book a time at either location that works for you.
We can also book your flu immunisation at our Johnsonville Medical Centre Vaccination Pop-up in the
Johnsonville Shopping Centre
if that is easier for you; just let us know when you call.
If you are coming to medical centre for a consultation you can also get your vaccine at the same time; let us know when you book. This is also currently only available for those 65 and older.
We do not have any information about general availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, but we will share this information as the rollout timeframe is confirmed.
