We highly recommend that all our patients get vaccinated.
Covid 19, especially the recent delta variant, can cause terrible illness and death. We can significantly reduce this risk with vaccination.
Please book a vaccine by searching on line for the Bookmyvaccine web site (covid19.govt.nz) or phone 0800 28 29 26.
For your convenience ,there is a vaccination location almost next door to our clinic near the Life Pharmacy Roselands shopping centre. There is usually no waiting.
Regarding the Pfizer vaccine safety-
There have now been countless millions of vaccinations given worldwide with very few serious side effects. In fact the Pfizer vaccine is a modification of a vaccine which has been in existence for over 10 years. It is extremely safe and compared to the very real risks associated with being unvaccinated , it is a wise decision to take it . Covid is here to stay for the foreseeable future and vaccination is the only way to enjoy freedom of movement in our modern society. Without it you will be infected eventually and then it is a genetic lottery as to whether you will be able to fight it off. The antibodies you create from this vaccine will give you the best possible chance of only experienceing mild symptoms.
