Delay - Flu Vaccination Season 2019
Due to the recent measles outbreak there is a delay in the start date for the flu vaccinations.
We will inform you when we are able to begin the flu season.
Measles in Canterbury
We understand many people may be anxious about these cases.
Anyone who is concerned that they or someone they are caring for has measles symptoms, or concerned that they have been exposed to measles should call our nurse for advice – Ph 920 4060
Please read below for further information:
Measles is a highly infectious viral illness spread by contact with respiratory secretions through coughing and sneezing.
Symptoms of measles include:
• A respiratory type of illness with dry cough, runny nose, headache
• Temperature over 38.5 C and feeling very unwell.
• A red blotchy rash starts on day 4-5 of the illness usually on the face and moves to the chest and arms.
People are infectious from five days before the onset of the rash to five days after the rash starts.
Anyone believing they have been exposed to measles or exhibiting symptoms, should not come into the practice or to after hour clinics, but call for advice. Infected persons should stay in isolation – staying home from school or work – during this time.
MMR vaccines are in very limited supply.
Since original advice given we have now been advised to prioritise vaccines to the most at risk:
Priority 1: Children aged 12 months to 13 years who have never been vaccinated
Priority 2: Children and adults aged 14 years to 28 years who have never been vaccinated
People born before 1969 are considered very low risk as they would have been infected naturally and are very likely to have immunity.
People who have had one dose of MMR are likely to have 95% protection from developing measles.
Dr John Dehn, Dr Janet Robinson, Dr Joanne Macgregor,
Dr Meredith Hicks, Dr Jian Yang Tham and Dr Don Ponnamperuma
along with their professional and friendly team provide a full range of general and family healthcare
and are committed to making excellent care available in our community.
John and Janet have been working in North Canterbury over the last 14 years,
and have a vast experience in general, acute medical and accident care.
Joanne has been living and practising in North Canterbury for 7 years,
Meredith worked as a GP in Christchurch for 17 years. She has been living in North Canterbury for 10 years,
with her husband and 3 children. She is looking forward to working in the North Canterbury community,
getting to know people living in the area, and contributing to their health and well being.
Jian Yang has been practising as a GP in Singapore since 2010.He chose family medicine because it allows him
to provide care for patients and their families in the community.
Along with his wife and daughter, he arrived in New Zealand in early 2017 and is very happy to be part of the team in Pegasus .
Drs Dehn , Robinson, Macgregor, Hicks and Tham believe that it is important in general practice
to allow sufficient time to listen to people, and establish a trustful doctor- patient relationship.
This relationship facilitates an approach to healthcare that is on a different level
than simply diagnosis and treatment.
FEE REDUCTIONS - From December 2018
• Low-Cost Visits for those with Community Services Cards and their dependants.
• Additional funding will also extend FREE doctors visits for children under 14
NB Appointment times are indicative. The Doctors and Nurses try their best to be on time. However, due to the nature of General Practice, acute and unwell patients and patients arriving late, there might be a wait time. Our receptionists will inform you of that, if there is any.
We appreciate your understanding.
If you can not make it to your appointment, kindly call us to cancel, so that another patient can have the slot.
