IMMUNISATION SERVICES

Flu Immunisation

Influenza Information

The flu is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications. It is spread by contact with respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Flu is very infectious and easily spread to other people. Around 1 in 4 New Zealanders are infected with influenza each year. Of these, up to 80% may have no symptoms, yet are able to pass it on to other people.. Symptoms of the flu can include fever, muscle and joint pain, extreme exhaustion, chills, sore throat and a stuffy nose.

Immunisation is the best protection against getting and spreading the flu. Annual immunisation is recommended because the virus is constantly changing, and the vaccine changes accordingly.

Please note: You may eligible for a funded vaccination for FREE if you fall into the below categories:

  • People aged 65 and older
  • Pregnant women

If you fall into any of the categories above, it is recommended that you speak with your pharmacist about flu immunisation and the available funding.
