    AA reminder masks work for more than just Covid-19

    AA reminder masks work for more than just Covid-19


    Health Ministry data shows only around 54 percent of DHB staff have had the flu jab.

    When it comes to the general public, almost 990-thousand people have had the flu vaccine, including 64 percent of people aged 65 plus.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is asking people to go and get a flu jab....and keeping using their masks.

    She says they have dual benefit, and while we've primarily used them for Covid, they're also a tool to slow down the spread of flu -- which is critical this winter.
