Tamariki are at risk of getting very sick from the flu, and of passing it on to their whānau.


It’s recommended all tamariki from 6 months old and their whānau get a flu vaccination every year. It’s free for tamariki aged 6 months to 12 years; if you’re pregnant; and for lots of other people. Those aged 5+ can get their COVID-19 booster at the same time.

It’s especially important for tamariki with health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes.

If your child is under 9 years old, talk to your vaccinator to see if they need 1 or 2 flu vaccinations (4 weeks apart).
