Local associations showcasing vaccination opportunities

Sports clubs around Auckland are opening their doors to more than just sport this weekend with winter wellness and vaccination events at various clubs across the city.

The clinical director of the NRHCC vaccination program, Dr. Anthony Jordan said that with winter weather now hitting much of the country, it’s important to think about your winter wellness plan.

“As we expected, we are already seeing a spike in winter illnesses across Auckland and it’s not just flu or ongoing COVID-19 cases.

“There are many other diseases that are of increasing concern during this time, so we must plan now to protect ourselves against the disease getting worse.

“Getting your flu shot or making sure you’re up to date on your COVID-19 boosters are two important things we can do. With many vaccination clinics nearby, people can have these done this weekend.

“It’s also important that people with longer-term health conditions, who often have a harder time during the winter, have all the necessary medication they need and a plan to get additional care and support if they need it.”

The Netball Community and Events Center in Manurewa, Kolmar Rugby Sport Club, Hawks Rugby League Club in Māngere East and the Auckland Netball Center in St Johns are all offering COVID-19 and flu vaccines this weekend.
