Influenza vaccine update 21 May 2020

The Ministry of Health has advised that demand for influenza vaccination has been exceptionally high this year, and they expect private market demand in particular to exceed available stocks of AFLURIA® QUAD. To offer protection for non-funded patients still wanting to be immunised against influenza this winter, the Ministry of Health and Pharmac successfully secured 360,000 doses of a vaccine manufactured for the 2019/2020 Northern Hemisphere influenza season.
