There are two confirmed cases of monkeypox in New Zealand. Here’s what you need to know

Monkeypox does not easily spread between people, so the risk to the general public is low.

Person to person spread may occur through:
- Kissing or intimate contact with an infected person
- Direct contact with monkeypox lesions
- Contact with contaminated bed linen or clothes
- Respiratory droplets from an individual with monkeypox.

The majority of people with monkeypox can be safely managed at home. They can stop isolating once their lesions have healed and any scabs have fallen off.

We are asking close contacts of confirmed monkeypox cases to monitor for symptoms for 3 weeks and isolate if symptoms develop. Contact your GP or health provider if you develop symptoms.

Tamariki aged between 3-12 will be eligible for a free flu jab from Friday 1 July.

Flu infection rates are generally highest in children, and they’re a major source of the spread of influenza. The flu virus may be found in respiratory secretions (breathing, coughing and sneezing) for two weeks or longer in children.

All New Zealanders are encouraged to get protected from flu this year, particularly people who may be more vulnerable. Not only for yourselves, but for your whānau and community as well. You can find more information here: www.health.govt.nz/flu

You can book a flu jab for yourself or your tamariki at your GP or nearest participating pharmacy: www.healthpoint.co.nz/pharmacy/?serviceArea=im%3A460472

We encourage you to double check that the provider is offering flu vaccinations and whether you need to book ahead.
