Immunisation 2024

We follow ATAGI’s advice regarding immunisation.

Currently if you are 75 years or over Covid boosters are recommended every 6 months, from 65 – 74 years they are recommended every 12 months and consider 6 monthly. For other adults consider 12 monthly boosters. Talk to your doctor if you are immunosuppressed or have had covid recently ask his changes the recommendations.

Influenza immunisation is recommended for all and funded at no cost for those at high risk ( $ 20 if you are not a high risk group) . Late April or May is the ideal time.

Other vaccines to protect against Shingles, Pneumonoccal pneumonia and Respiratory Syncytial Virus may also be recommended depending on your age. Some are funded , some require purchasing.

Ours nurses and doctors are happy to give advice and administer the vaccines, or ask your pharmacy.
