Ministry of Health Immunisation Update 15 March 2019
Friday, March 15, 2019
- INFLUVAC® TETRA, for adults and children 3 years and over – deliveries are expected to begin in time for the start date of 1 April.
- In contrast to previous years, claims for funded influenza vaccines given before 1 April will not be accepted.
- FLUARIX® TETRA, for children under 3 years ie 6 to 35 months – Is expected to be available from mid-April.
- The Ministry is working with Canterbury DHB to plan deliveries of influenza vaccine in that region to avoid overwhelming practice fridge capacity during their MMR campaign.
