Posted by on 4 April 2020

We now have a limited supply of flu vaccines. We are actively recalling the "at risk" patients. If you who are eligible for a FREE flu vaccine (click on link for eligibility) or a healthcare worker, you can now have your flu vaccines.

For everyone, else, the Ministry of Health are requesting we do not start vaccinating until after 13 April to give priority to those who are most at risk.
