New Zealanders eligible for free influenza immunisation have less than a week left to be vaccinated before a government-subsidised offer ends at the end of the month.

The National Influenza Specialist Group said a record 1.25 million doses of vaccine had been distributed already this year resulting in an estimated 29 per cent of the population receiving immunisation.

Anyone who wants to be immunised against influenza after July 31 will have to pay a charge to get it from their doctor, nurse or in some pharmacies.
