Get your Flu vaccine today
Being vaccinated against the flu means your body will be able to respond faster and more effectively to fight the flu. Although you can still get the flu after being vaccinated, you usually will get only a mild form and recover faster. You are also much less likely to have serious complications.
How much will it cost?
The flu vaccine is FREE for people who are considered more likely to get sick with the flu. If you are enrolled with us, and fall into these groups, you should have already been contacted by your clinic. These groups include:
- Pregnant women (any trimester)
- People aged 65 years older
- Māori and Pacific peoples aged 55 to 64 years
- People aged under 65 years with any of the medical conditions
- People under 65 years of age who have schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, or schizoaffective disorder; OR are currently accessing secondary or tertiary mental health and addiction services
- Children aged 3 to 12 years inclusive
- Children aged 4 years or under who have been hospitalised for respiratory illness or have a history of significant respiratory illness
Non enrolled and patients that do not meet the criteria: For people not enrolled with us, or for patients enrolled with either Local Doctors or White Cross, but that do not meet the criteria, the cost is $30.
How long will it take?
In most cases, you don't need to wait afterward so the process is very quick. A few minutes.
A small number of patients will be asked to wait for twenty minutes afterward to ensure there is no reaction to the injection. Mostly these people can wait in their car.
Where can I get vaccinated?
All our 40+ clinics can offer flu vaccinations. Keep in mind, many of our clinics are open 8am to 8pm 7 days per week for your convenience. Two clinics operate 24/7.
You don't have to be enrolled with us, but the price is much lower if you are.
You don't need to make an appointment. However, with our White Cross clinics, we advise calling first as they mostly deal with accident and emergency cases and have to take more urgent cases first.
Just click on the Local Doctors logo on the top of your screen to find the clinic nearest to you.
All our clinics have special safety procedures in place.
