Flu Vaccinations 2024

FLU

The Flu Vaccine is now available.

Everyone from the age of 6 months is recommended to receive an annual influenza vaccine to reduce the spread of the influenza virus, and for the direct protection against severe illness.

The flu vaccine is free for some people:

  • pregnant people
  • everyone aged 65 years and older
  • adults with underlying health conditions including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, and serious asthma or respiratory disease
  • adults with an autoimmune disease, a cochlear implant or Down syndrome
  • anyone with mental illness such as schizophrenia or those currently accessing mental health services.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, please have a chat to one of our nurses or visit Flu (influenza) vaccine | Immunise | Te Whatu Ora for further information.

The cost for patients who are not eligible for a free influenza vaccine is $40

This year the practice is providing two different influenza vaccines:

  • Influvac Tetra – free to those who meet the eligibility criteria
  • FluadQuad – not funded but can be privately purchased at a cost of $50.00 but is only available to those over 65 years of age.

You can book you flu vaccine on myindici or by calling the practice. If you are wanting FluadQuad, you will need to call the practice to book as we hold limited stock on site.
