National Immunisation Week
New Zealand is celebrating Immunisation Week on 2nd – 8th May. This year’s theme is ‘Protecting your Baby Starts in Pregnancy’. Expectant mums are encouraged to be immunised during their pregnancy for influenza (flu) and whooping cough, immunise their baby on time and enrol early with a midwife and GP to get the care they need. Immunisation in pregnancy offers protection to the mother, the unborn baby, the newborn baby and is FREE.
