Flu Vaccines

Flu season is upon us, and flu vaccines are available now. Please ring reception to arrange an appointment.

Vaccines are fully funded:

• You are 65 years and over
• You are pregnant
• Adults and Children who have a chronic health condition
• Māori and Pacific peoples aged 55 to 64 years

Non-funded vaccines cost $25 for registered adults and children.

Non-funded vaccines cost $36 for non-registered patients.

Remember, Immunisation is the best way to protect our communities and Whanau from infection and serious illness.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown periods and border closures, influenza infections for the past two years have been very low which may have led to lower immunity the NZ population.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease and borders re-open, it can be expected
that a resurgence of respiratory viruses will follow, and vaccination against the Influenza virus is highly recommended.

Thanks, the team at Amuri Health
