Getting the flu shot for winter

Getting the influenza vaccine was a no brainer for Banks Peninsula resident, Digital Capability Manager for Careerforce, Ian Moir. With the move to the orange traffic light setting and workplaces and activities opening again, Ian knows getting his flu jab is the best way to protect himself and those around him.

“I have been primarily working from home for two years now, but my workplace has opened up again and more people are returning to the office.”

Ian’s role sees him travelling to Wellington often as well as frequent meetings with his team and suppliers.

“Getting the flu vaccine is not only about protecting myself but making sure that I am not going to spread any bugs to others.”

Ian chose Barrington Medical Centre’s Vaccination Hub to get his vaccine. He found the process to be very quick and friendly.

“I went to Barrington on my lunch break and got my vaccine straight away with no waiting. Everyone was helpful, particularly the vaccinator who was cheerful and really put me at ease,” Ian says.
