Flu shots are available now.

The influenza (flu) and COVID-19 vaccines can be given at the same time, before or after each other. There is no need to leave a gap between these vaccines.

The faces of Treasure our Whānau

The three people at the top of the page had their portraits painted to help promote flu shots in 2021. Look out for their posters at your doctor’s surgery and local pharmacy. 

Mrs Usha Vij

Usha migrated to New Zealand from India in 2004 to join her sons and family. She is well known, respected and loved in the Auckland Indian community. Since 2019 she has been part of the local Flu Fighting Community campaign as an active Muskaan Care Trust NZ member. 

Matua Albert Tepania, Ngāpuhi, Ngatikahu ki Whangaroa

Albie is very active in supporting other kaumātua in his local West Auckland community. Last November, he took part in a discussion about influenza immunisation. He talked about having his first flu shot in 2020. We spent time with Albie and are pleased to share some of his thoughts and insights into how a flu shot helps protect his whānau.
