We're pleased to now be starting the rollout of the 2022 Flu immunisation programme. If you like to find out more about the flu immunisation, take a look at our Should I get a flu shot? article or head to the Ministry of Health Flu 2022 page.
Eligibility and Costs
We provide fully funded Flu immunisations are available for the following people:
- Anyone aged 65+
- Those with Maori or Pacific ethnicity who are aged 55+
- Anyone who has a medical condition listed on Influenza.org list of conditions and is registered with either Johnsonville Medical Centre or Thorndon Medical Centre.
These include things like heart disease, some respiratory conditions, diabetes, renal conditions and autoimmune diseases, but please refer to the link to determine your eligibility. If you enrolled at another medical centre and think you have an eligible condition then we recommend you arrange your flu immunisation via your medical centre.
For everyone else, flu immunisations are still available for the following costs:
- Patients enrolled with Johnsonville Medical Centre or Thorndon Medical Centre -$37
- Other patients - $42
You can also get your vaccination with us if you have flu immunisation voucher from Lifecare Consultants via your workplace. Please ensure you bring you voucher with you otherwise a charge will apply.
We unfortunately cannot accept vouchers from Maxwell Health.
If aged 3+
Flu immunisations for everyone aged 3+ are at our Vaccination Clinic in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre, where we have also been doing our COVID-19 vaccinations. The vaccination clinic is open from 9am - 4.30pm, 7 days a week.
If you are enrolled at Johnsonville Medical Centre or Thorndon Medical Centre and have ManageMyHealth, you can book your flu online. Simply go to ManageMyHealth and once you've answered the screening questions select the location as Vaccination Clinic - Johnsonville and then pick your time.
If you don't have ManageMyHealth, you can call us on 04 920 8850 to book ahead of time.
We also have some walk-in capacity on the day, but you'll need to check with team at the door of the clinic to see if that is available at any particular time. We cannot guarantee availability of walk-in appointments.
Alternatively you can also get your immunisation in Thorndon at Thorndon Medical Centre, 100 Molesworth Street Thorndon. To book at Thorndon you'll need to call us on 04 920 8850 to book.
If you are coming to either Johnsonville or Thorndon Medical Centres for a different reason you can also get your vaccine at the same time; let us know when you book. Those coming only for a flu immunisation will be booked into one of our dedicated clinics at either the Vaccination Clinic or Thorndon Medical Centre.
Aged under 3
Flu immunisations for those who are under the age of three are available from Johnsonville Medical Centre. Please call us to book these vaccinations.
We are continuing to offer adult and child COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters at the vaccination clinic as well, so if you need to get vaccinated or have any questions then please do see our team onsite as well.
