FLU VACCINE from 1 April 2022

Cornwall Medical Centre is fully stocked with flu vaccine for ALL ages.

The past lockdowns and ongoing social distancing have seen low numbers of influenza infection in New Zealand in the last 2 years. This is likely to change with the relaxation in social distancing restrictions and as the New Zealand opens its borders to overseas travel. 

It is therefore important to protect ourselves against the seasonal influenza, as the symptoms of flu can be hard to distinguish from symptoms of COVID-19.
