Flu Vaccinations

All about the 2019 Influenza Season

2019 key messages

  • Around one in four New Zealanders are infected with influenza or ‘flu’ each year. Many won’t feel sick at all, but can still pass it on to others. Getting an influenza vaccination before winter offers you and others the best protection
  • Pregnant women and their babies can suffer serious consequences as a result of influenza. A FREE influenza vaccination during any trimester of the pregnancy reduces this risk
  • Older people and those with certain medical conditions are more likely to have medical complications from influenza. A FREE influenza vaccination reduces these risks
  • Influenza is a serious illness that can put anyone in hospital or even kill them, including young and healthy people
  • Influenza vaccination is safe, effective and cannot give you “the flu”

More than 1.2 million New Zealanders have their influenza vaccination each year. Getting vaccinated each year as early as possible before winter hits gives the best protection.

Give us a call to see one of our nurses or alternatively pop in between Mondays and Fridays.

Call us on 09 267 4525 to make an appointment with one of our nurses. Throat checks can prevent rheumatic fever.

What is rheumatic fever?

Children and young people are the most likely to get rheumatic fever. It occurs after a strep throat – a throat infection caused by a Group A Streptococcus (GAS) bacteria. Most strep throat gets better and doesn’t lead to rheumatic fever. However, in a small number of people, untreated strep throat develops into rheumatic fever, where their heart, joints, brain and skin become inflamed and swollen.

While the symptoms of rheumatic fever may disappear on their own, the inflammation can cause rheumatic heart disease, that causes scarring of the heart valves.

People with rheumatic heart disease may need heart valve replacement surgery and can die prematurely.
