COVID-19: Please visit the CBAC tent at Whanganui Hospital for free assessment and testing.
UPDATE ON COVID-19 VACCINATIONS
Whanganui is now rolling out vaccinations to Group 3. Included in this group are:
+ All people aged 65 yrs and older
+ Māori or Pacific people aged 50 yrs and older
+ People who are disabled or have a relevant underlying health condition, which includes
- serious and chronic respiratory conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- chronic kidney/renal disease
- coronary heart conditions
- hypertension (high blood pressure)
- cancer, excluding basal and squamous skin cancers if not invasive.
+ People who care for a person with a disability or are pregnant (any trimester)
People in Group 3 get earlier access to a vaccine because their age or health condition means it is much more likely that people will get very sick if they catch COVID-19.
At Aramoho Health Centre we are continuing to vaccinate our most vulnerable patients in residential care and the people who care for them. We are also beginning to book clinics for Group 3 patients in June.
You will be contacted by us directly to book an appointment at one of our clinics.
You can also call the free phone number 0800 202 004 if you are in Group 3 and would like to book an appointment at one of Te Oranganui’s upcoming clinics, see https://www.wdhb.org.nz/
Flu vaccines are available now, please phone us for a booking on 06 343 9050
Please note: There is a recommended two week stand down period between having a flu vaccination and a covid vaccination.
