Flu vaccine update 10/5/20
If you are eligible for the funded free flu vaccine or if you have been sent a recall text or letter by our administrative team, please ring reception to book an appointment for your free flu vaccine. You could check if you are eligible on https://www.influenza.org.nz/eligibility-criteria
As per Ministry of Health instructions, private purchase/non-funded flu vaccines for all ages are currently on hold.
For under 3 year olds, we currently do not have an estimated date for when we would be allowed to administer non-funded Flu flu vaccines (please note we are still able to give them to eligible children). For over 3 year olds and adults, we will be able to administer non-funded private purchase flu vaccines from approximately mid May once the next shipment into New Zealand is distributed to us. Please note funded free flu vaccines are going ahead as usual.
Covid-19 alert levels 2/3/4
College Hill Doctors remain OPEN during Covid-19.
You can still phone 3608008 to request a consultation with your doctor, or to request a repeat prescription to be faxed to a pharmacy near you, or to book vaccination appointments.
Consultation appointments are usually offered first as a telephone consult at a booked time with your doctor at the normal charge. After the telephone consultation with you, if you require a physical examination in person, your doctor will book you in later in the day at no extra cost to you. We have found most problems could be successfully managed without in
person physical examination during this challenging time as we try to keep you within your protective bubble.
If you are coming to the clinic in person for an appointment, please bring your mobile phone. This is because we are asking all patients arriving at the clinic to wait outside or in private vehicles. Your doctor will ring you to let you in when it is your time to be seen.
