Cornwall Medical Centre is fully stocked with flu vaccines.
It is important to protect ourselves against the seasonal influenza, as the symptoms of flu can be hard to distinguish from symptoms of COVID-19.
For up to date information on influenza and the flu vaccine, visit:
The Flu Vaccine is free to you if you are:
over 65 years of age (>55 year old for Maori and Pacific people), or
