From 19 January, Mpox vaccination will be available to eligible people at designated sexual health clinics and a number of pop-up sites. At these clinics, before offering vaccination, health professionals will discuss with patients the risk of exposure to mpox, and options, benefits, and risks of vaccination.


Eligibility for mpox vaccination pre-exposure:

- Gay, bisexual or other men who have sex with men (MSM) who have multiple sexual partners, and trans and non-binary people and cis-gender women who are in intimate relationships with these men.

- Those recommended to have the vaccine by medical specialists, e.g. sexual health, infectious diseases, general medicine

- Laboratory workers culturing the mpox virus.

The vaccine requires a prescription and, due to limited supply, will only be available at these clinics.

We recently returned to business as usual, with face to face appointments available with our doctors and nurses. If you are unwell, have COVID, or are a household contact, we will need to have a phone or video consult first.


Script requests and other enquiries can be sent via the contact forms on our website.

https://www.hobsonvillefamilydoctors.co.nz/contact


We are still able to do supervised RAT tests and PCR swabs for the lab if needed - please use the contact form or leave a message with our nurses (09 416 8541 ext 2) and they will be able to book this.


The best place to get a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) is still at a Community Testing Centre. Up to date locations for these are here:

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please visit https://immunisation.northernregion.health.nz/whanauhq/ for further information and instructions.


If you have tested positive on a RAT supplied from work or somewhere else, please register your results online at https://mycovidrecord.health.nz/ or call 0800 222 478.
