The Government has announced more free flu vaccines and a second Covid-19 booster for groups of people at risk of hospitalisation.

Health Minister Andrew Little said an extra 800,000 New Zealanders will be eligible for free flu vaccines from Friday July 1.

This will include children aged 3-12 and people with serious mental health or addiction needs.
