North­land health board kept quiet ini­tially about rise of deadly dis­ease Rose-Vince McBir­ney Cad­ness Sham­ful not telling the pub­lic Lyn­d­sey Hob­son Chur for the panic . . . but you know . . . could al­ways vac­ci­nate

vac­ci­nated or not . . . Your chil­dren can still con­tract the dis­ease. Just say­ing.

It costs ac­tu­ally to get that in­jec­tion for that strain! Hence the pub­lic warn­ing.

more peo­ple prob­a­bly died of the com­mon flu up here this win­ter in North­land.

True but this isn’t the strain cover by the im­mu­ni­sa­tion pro­gramme in NZ. This strain you have to ac­tu­ally pay for it, so hence the pub­lic warn­ing, al­beit late!

So when I took my son to white cross yes­ter­day (Thurs­day) and was told he has an ear in­fec­tion but its vi­ral so no an­tibi­otics. Should I be tak­ing him back to the drs?

Fire­works may have caused house fire

Sue Grace Ban the flip­pin things. Lisa Pilcher Can to­tally un­der­stand how the fire­works could be to blame. We had the card­board bits with singed edges land­ing on our roof and back door step thanks to the neigh­bours a cou­ple of doors down let­ting them off. Lucky didn’t hap­pen to us also.

Ban the cir­cus. End of story.

North­land Res­cue He­li­copter cel­e­brates 30 years in the air

I used this ser­vice in De­cem­ber 1989 to fly to Auck­land to give birth to our pre­ma­ture baby. So glad you were there to help. Thank you.

They are awe­some. We were taken by am­bu­lance to BOI hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance fol­low­ing a car crash, but doc­tors there weren’t keen on treat­ing my son’s wound so the NEST trans­ferred us to Whanga¯rei Hos­pi­tal (al­ter­na­tive trip by am­bu­lance would have been hor­ri­ble).

Great ser­vice in need of more money to keep go­ing and this ap­plies to all air am­bu­lances.

Many doc­tors felt the only op­tion they had for peo­ple who were strug­gling with men­tal health prob­lems was med­i­ca­tion be­cause of the ex­ces­sive wait­ing lists for coun­selling Christina Marie So true, and the cost.

Deb­bie Larsen True but in this busy life of high ex­pec­ta­tions, it’s no won­der peo­ple want a quick fix me up, life is too short, even shorter if there’s no re­lief, an­tide­pres­sants have their place, without them our al­ready high Sui­cide rate would be even higher!!

North­land wing Scott Gre­gory in NZ 7s squad Wil­liam Morunga great start . . . be good for his run­ning and pass­ing game. this is ac­tu­ally bet­ter for him than hit­ting the pine in su­per rugby I be­lieve.

Shee­lagh McDon­agh Prosser Con­grat­u­la­tions Scott.

Schools get two-week win­dow to ap­ply for $10,000 grants for beginner teach­ers

Bob War­man Let’s not for­get that just a few years ago school prin­ci­pals were equat­ing them­selves to busi­ness CEOs. That got a good ole laugh in the bizzo com­mu­nity. But any­hoo, they should be able to claim a fur­ther quick 10 large in 2 weeks. A CEO wouldn’t even bother — he/ she would give the job to a clerk!! Kaitaia teen Ala­maine Tahi­tahi-Matiu awarded $10,000 to pur­sue dream of be­com­ing wa¯hine Ma¯ori GP in Far North

Con­grats Ala­maine! Was awe­some to meet you — keep on rock­ing it for North­land!
