Peninsula Medical Centre - Te Atatu Peninsula
Peninsula Medical Centre is OPEN during COVID-19 Lockdown
Peninsula Medical Centre is your primary care clinic. We are an essential service, therefore we remain open. To protect our vulnerable patients and staff, and reduce the spread of COVID-19 there are some some key changes about how we run:
- Majority of consultations are done remotely (phone consultations) unless the GP deems it clinically necessary and has specifically advised you to come in to the clinic for a face-to-face visit. Call Reception to book an appointment (09) 834 6300
- Prescriptions will be sent directly to your local Pharmacy, you will not be able to pick these up from the clinic. Please identify your local Pharmacy before speaking to a Doctor or Nurse.
- Reduced Hours - 8.00am-5.00pm Monday-Friday - So that we can better manage staffing, our opening hours are reduced.
- No Saturday clinics until further notice.
- Flu Vaccines - Call us to make an appointment. Vaccines will be given from the car park. Please call us to let us know when you have arrived. NOTE: Flu Vaccine stock shortage - please call to check if there is stock available.
We are an approved COVID-19 Designated Testing Practice, this means we can safely test and assess our patients as well as other members of the community. The testing is completely separate from the GP Clinic, so it is safe for those who are needing to come into the clinic. We can test anyone with ANY of the following symptoms:
- Sore Throat
- Shortness of Breath
- Head Cold (e.g. Runny Nose, Sneezing, Post-Nasal Drip)
- Loss of sense of smell
As the situation evolves, we are adapting with it, so there may be further changes to the above. Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this together!
Stay Safe. Be Kind. Kia Kaha!

The 2019 outbreak of Measles is serious. There are risks that children may die of complications. Those who are too young for vaccinations or are immuno-compromised are our most vulnerable.
The only protection is to have the MMR Vaccination.
The MMR vaccine is FREE for those aged 12months - 50years old who have not received
- Children from 12 months old can be have the MMR vaccine, along with three others on the immunisation schedule (previously given at 15months).
- Infants aged 6-11 months would need to see a doctor to be prescribed the MMR vaccine if travelling ot countries with measles outbreaks, or if there are concerns about high-risk of exposure to measles.
- Adults over 50 years (born before 1969) are considered immune and do not require the vaccine.
