Petition to reduce places that sell tobacco

The Team from Counties Manukau Health

Tobacco is the most harmful consumer product in history. It kills about 13 New Zealanders every day. Yet tobacco can be sold anywhere and by anyone. Even though it’s an R18 product, it’s sold with everyday grocery items in over 6,000 places where children often go. Significantly reducing the number of places selling tobacco will prevent people from starting smoking in the first place, support people to quit, and help reach our goal to make Aotearoa Smokefree by 2025. Please consider signing this very important petition: tinyurl.com...

If you would like help to quit smoking, please contact our Living Smokefree Service, Phone: 0800 569 568, Email: smokefree@middlemore.co.nz

Older Maaori and Pacific people, and those living in their households (aged 16 years and over), and people living in South Auckland aged 65 years and over are being sent invitations to get their COVID-19 vaccination.

Those who are enrolled with a family doctor will receive a text or email inviting them to book a vaccination appointment. If you’re not enrolled with a family doctor, you can find a doctor in your area on Healthpoint: bit.ly...

If you are enrolled, don’t worry if you don’t receive an invitation straight away - these will be sent out in groups so it may take a couple of weeks for an invitation to be sent to all of you.

More info including how to book, what this means for your whaanau, and where to go for more information can be found here on our website: bit.ly...
