VACCINATIONS

Getting a flu vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your family against the effects of the flu: headaches, fever and aches and pains. The vaccine can also greatly reduce your risk of serious complications that can develop from the flu.

  • Influenza can be life-threatening, especially for the elderly, young children and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems.
  • It is important to note that the flu vaccine does not give you the flu. That is a common misconception.
  • flu vaccinations are FREE for New Zealanders who are 65 years or older and this can be done at the pharmacy.
  • It is best to be vaccinated early in the season, as it can take up to two weeks following the vaccination for the body to develop flu-fighting antibodies.

We also specialize in workplace flu job clinics and are happy to come to your workplace. You can save time by filling out your consent form at www.flushot.co.nz/
