Date: 
Saturday, July 6, 2019

The Ministry of Health and PHARMAC are pleased to advise that an additional 55,000 doses of influenza vaccine FLUQUADRI™ have been sourced for delivery to New Zealand from Monday 8 July. This should enable providers to receive delivery from later that week onwards.Providers can now place orders for FluQuadri through HCL. A minimum and maximum order of 30 doses applies. FluQuadri is supplied with separate needles.

While those at greatest risk of the disease continue to be the priority, the additional vaccines mean that other New Zealanders will be able to purchase the vaccine once the new stocks arrive.

 Please read the Ministry of Health news item for the full update and additional information about claiming for administration of funded influenza vaccines.
