MedPro is assisting with the Governments strategic response to COVID-19, and we are currently vaccinating frontline personnel and healthcare staff. This will ensure our health sector has the capacity to respond to the national emergency situation.
The Ministry of Health has advised us today of the following:
“It has been decided that the period for vaccination of priority groups – people eligible to receive funded influenza vaccination and frontline workers (not the same as essential workers) – will be extended to around the end of April. A public announcement is expected on this later this week”.
This means we have had to postpone all flu vaccination bookings. The Public Health strategy is still to have everyone vaccinated as soon as possible, so please be assured we will work very hard to reschedule the bookings and get everyone vaccinated. We are anticipating this will be from end of April.
We have been advised by Greencross Health that vouchers will not be able to be redeemed at their pharmacies until they have confirmation from the Ministry of Health that vaccinations can go ahead. For those eligible people we advise you to talk to your GP directly. You can find a full list of eligible health conditions and other information here: https://www.fightflu.co.nz/
What we can do for you
Workplace Flu Vaccinations
Flu vaccination protects not only the person vaccinated, but the people around them who may be more vulnerable. The elderly, children, pregnant women, and people with low immunity are at high risk of dying from the Flu.
Workplace Health Checks
Assessment is the foundation of a well planned and successful wellness programme. This is best achieved by health checks at your workplace by our experienced Registered Nurses. Nurses are trained to recognise unspoken signals – the human touch works!
Occupational Health Monitoring
Health screening is essential for any person about to be employed. This not only provides information to the prospective employer on their suitability for the job, but also provides valuable baseline data for future comparison.
The benefits of keeping your staff well include increased employee productivity, significant reduction in absenteeism, improved work culture, reduced burden on co-workers, and a reduction in staff turnover.
CPR Training for Health Professionals
MedPro offers a range of CPR courses equivalent to The New Zealand Resuscitation Council’s CORE courses for doctors, nurses, dentists and dental technicians. We also run basic life support courses for groups of non clinical staff.
MedPro Healthcare (NZ) Ltd is a privately owned New Zealand company that was incorporated in 2004. Founded by Registered Nurse Bella Winter, Medpro has grown to be a well recognised and trusted workplace health services provider.
What clients have to say
Just a short note to thank you for your assistance in helping me to organise our health checks. I’d also like to mention the high level of professionalism shown by your nurse through her dealings with our team members – their feedback was incredibly positive.
It was a pleasure to work with you over the Wellness Expos and Medpro worked wonderfully with our staff. I was thrilled to see that you were so well organised on all occasions which made our work a lot easier.”
Bank of New Zealand
We have found the service provided by MedPro over the years to Auckland Police to be conducted in a professional and effective manner and the flexibility shown by MedPro to meet the intricacies of our core business has been of great value which resulted in minimal disruption. We would, and without reservation, recommend MedPro to supply and conduct any Influenza vaccination programme you may be contemplating.
New Zealand Police
Bella and her team have done some fantastic Men’s Health stations for us over the years and added a very popular addition to a number of events.
Great to meet your nurses today, thank you for coming in and making the process so easy.
We know that we can’t work to our best when people get the Flu, which is why we engage the services of MedPro every year to offer free Flu vaccinations for our people through out New Zealand. MedPro offer a quick and easy service and our people tell us their experience of the Registered Nurses is that they’re friendly, professional and efficient. We can trust MedPro and thank them for helping us support the health and wellbeing of our people so we can continue to deliver great work to our clients.

Thanks so much for your help with our vaccines this year; really appreciate how easy you make it!
All went extremely well. The team was well engaged by the instructor’s way of teaching. So good we can do it in our own environment.
We really enjoyed our recent CPR training with the new CPR technology. It provided very individual, factual feedback re the quality of CPR we were doing re compressions, depth, rate, and the documented on the spot feedback proved invaluable to the entire group of us, improving significantly on our practical CPR by the commencement of the course.

Everyone will be thankful they have finished organizing flu vaccinations for their staff this year. It can seem like a daunting exercise. So why do we have to do this every year? Today, the term “the flu” no longer instills fear, and is often confused with the common...
