COVID-19 vaccine

Immunisation against infectious diseases has been more effective in preventing illness and death than any other medical intervention.

Tuakau Health Centre supports the New Zealand government’s COVID-19 immunisation program as current research data shows the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective for patients.

We are not taking appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations, but we will update you as soon as we have more information.

Flu shots are available now and FREE for anyone aged 65 or older

For everyone else, it will be available from mid-May.

New Zealand’s 2021 flu vaccine protects against four strains of flu virus – two influenza type A strains and two influenza type B strains:

+ A/Victoria/2570/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus
+ A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2)-like virus
+ B/Washington/02/2019-like virus
+ B/Phuket/3073/2013-like virus

Throughout the year, the World Health Organization monitors the different flu strains around the world and each year decides which strains are likely to cause flu in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres. Flu vaccine manufacturers make each year’s vaccine by growing lots of these viruses, mostly in hens’ eggs. They then inactivate the virus and extract the bits that are needed to make the vaccine.

The vaccine:

+ Does not contain any live viruses and so cannot cause flu.
+ Does not contain any preservatives, thiomersal or mercury.
+ Contains only very tiny amounts of egg protein and is safe for people with egg allergies
