Free flu vaccine for Māori and Pasifika age 55 to 64


31 March 2022


Māori and Pacific peoples aged 55 to 64 years will be eligible for a free flu vaccine this year, amid concerns that New Zealand may have a severe flu season this coming this winter. Previously the age cut-off for people was 65. 

Our borders are opening soon and we encourage our communities to protect themselves from both the flu and COVID by getting vaccinated.
