Tamariki are less likely to become seriously unwell with COVID-19. 
 

However, tamariki are more likely to get sick if they have the following health conditions:

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart problems

  • Asthma and other breathing problems

  • Diabetes

  • Cancer and some blood problems

  • Kidney problems

  • Other health problems which mean they are more likely to get sick. 

Free flu vaccinations are available for tamariki under the age of 4 years old who have a history of respiratory illness. 

A flu vaccination wont protect tamariki from COVID-19 but it will help to keep them really well during the winter. 

Contact your GP for more information on how to get a flu vaccination. More information about flu vaccinations is available here

To make sure we share up-to-date advice and information on this website is updated regularly.
