PHARMAC are widening access to influenza vaccine from 1 April 2022 for Māori and Pacific peoples who are 55-64 years of age, for the duration of the 2022 calendar year.
This applies to all flu vaccines: AFLURIA QUAD, AFLURIA QUAD JUNIOR, FLUAD QUAD, FLUQUADRI.
We are very pleased to see so many New Zealanders opting to protect themselves against influenza this season with 800,000 doses of flu vaccine shipped out of HCL to vaccinators already.
This interim process only applies to Pharmacist Vaccinators and Provisional Pharmacist Vaccinators.
The online portal is now open for claims for reimbursement.
