Disappointment over the numbers of health workers yet to get the flu vaccine.

Health Ministry data shows only around 54 percent of DHB staff have received the jab so far.

Meanwhile, Wellington's district health boards have paused non-urgent care, due to an unprecedented level of staff absence.

National Immunisation Advisory Centre's Nikki Turner told Mike Hosking we all know what impact getting the flu jab has.

She says it's about trying to support the sector, and flu vaccination makes a difference.
