HNZ: National Immunisation Programme update for week ending 4 November 2022

Kia ora koutou,

Hope you have all had a lovely week and are looking forward to the weekend. Here’s a couple of updates from this week. Please share with people in your networks and as ever, thank you for your help. 

Shingles vaccine

We wanted to give you a heads up that on Monday 7 November we will be sending out an email about the shingles vaccine. The email will communicate to people who have recently turned 65 and those that are soon to turn 66 and direct them to contact their medical practice to book or discuss the shingles vaccine the next time they are seeing their doctor.

REMINDER:  National Immunisation Programme hui

Don’t forget our next National Immunisation Programme hui is being held from 12 noon – 1.00pm, Thursday 10 November 2022. We warmly invite you to attend.

This lunchtime hui is designed to keep our vaccination and immunisation teams up to date with plans and activities undertaken by the National Immunisation Programme. The hui will include the following updates:

Our regular weekly reminders

Weekly vaccination data

A new weekly, online Trends and Insights report has replaced our previous, downloadable Whānau Māori and Pacific Peoples Data summaries. Our Māori and Pacific data can be found here: COVID-19 Trends and Insights, COVID-19: Current Cases, COVID-19 Case Demographics and COVID-19 Vaccine Data.

Collateral on Dropbox

Don’t forget all our immunisation collateral is available on Dropbox for health care providers to use when promoting vaccinations. Please feel free to share this link and the collateral widely with your other healthcare colleagues: Dropbox: NIP – vaccine resources – Simplify your life.

Consent forms (English and Te Reo Māori) and policy statements for use by health professionals can also be found in this Dropbox.

You can also find a range of vaccination stories to share on our YouTube channel.

Kia pai te mutunga wiki. 

Ngā mihi nui,
