Influenza can be very serious and even fatal; everyone is at risk regardless of age and fitness. In 2017 1 in 4 New Zealanders caught the flu. Catching the flu can affect work and school schedules, holidays and social activities, and even financial and mental health. The immunisation prepares your body to fight off infection and lessens your risk of becoming sick or passing on sickness.

In 2023 the flu jab is FREE for:

  • Children 6 months to 12 years old.
  • Anyone 65 years and over.
  • Māori and Pasifika people 55 years and over.
  • Pregnant people.
  • People with long term conditions, including mental health and addiction.

If you believe you should be eligible for a funded immunisation talk to reception when booking.

This year there is also a second vaccination option available for those 65 years and older. FLUAD® Quad is the only flu vaccine containing MF59® Adjuvant, designed to help your body create more antibodies to help fight influenza. For those over 65 years it provides more protection for longer. This option is unfunded, talk to reception when you book in.
