Flu vac­cines urged

South Waikato News - - NEWS / HE PU¯RONGORONGO -

Win­ter has only just be­gun and the Toko­roa Med­i­cal Cen­tre is re­mind­ing pa­tients to get in for in­fluenza vac­ci­na­tions.

Prac­tice manager Su­san Ryan said vac­cines, that came out in April, would be avail­able un­til the end of July.

They are free for some pa­tients.

To get the best im­mu­nity, they should be ad­min­is­tered as soon as pos­si­ble, she said.

‘‘The ad­vice is that the sooner they come in and get it the sooner they get im­mu­nity.’’

So far this year, more than 3600 peo­ple have re­ceived the vac­cine at the clinic.
