Our team of frontline health workers are now being vaccinated against COVID-19 (through the CDHB).
We regularly see patients with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and so vaccination helps prevent passing infection on to our other patients if we’re exposed. We believe there is good evidence for the safety and effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine being used in New Zealand.
We’re actively trying to secure COVID-19 vaccination at Selwyn Village Healthcare for our patients, but don’t yet know when this might happen. We’ll keep you posted through our website.
