Book now for non funded flu vaccinations

April 23, 2020


Non Funded Flu Vaccinations

Finally, we can offer flu vaccinations to those not eligible for a funded one. Our private flu vaccination campaign starts on Tuesday 28th April and you can book now, but only through our reception. We know there are many people waiting and we expect there to be a rush. If you are pregnant, over 65 or have one of a list of medical issues as per our last news letter then you can come in sooner and for free.

The flu vaccination costs $38 and must be paid at the time of booking, as you will not be able to pay at reception when you come in for the vaccination. Please call 09 489 2011 to book, and please note our doctors, nurses and medical assistants can not book you in for this, only the reception team.

We will only book as far ahead as we have flu vaccinations available. The supply of the flu vaccination is only in small batches currently.

We will be checking temperatures prior to the flu vaccination, please do not come in if you are hot or unwell. The nurse team will be wearing PPE, and will either vaccinate you in your car, or may take you into our waiting room (max 2 at a time) for the vaccination. You will be asked to wait in your car for 20 minutes if you came alone, or for 5 minutes if you came with someone.

To date over 600, 000 flu vaccinations have been given in New Zealand in the last month, we certainly have had one of the biggest uptakes ever at Medplus with approximately 1800 vaccines having been given. Our nursing team have been outstanding in their professionalism and enthusiasm in achieving this so quickly and we are very grateful to them for making it possible.
