Prime Minister Jacinda Adern made a whistlestop visit to Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki yesterday, spending time with kaimahi and management in the wharehui, before heading off around the complex for a meet and greet. Super relaxed and friendly, the Prime Minister happily chatted and posed for photos with kaimahi before being whizzed away to her next appointment armed with a kete full of goodies, including a wee gift for daughter Neve.
Ko Moehau ki waho, Ko Te Aroha ki uta.
Ko Waihou, ko Piako me ko Ohinemuri ngā awa.
Ko Tīkapakapa te moana
Ko Ngāti Maru, ko Ngāti Tamaterā ngā iwi.
Ko Matai Whetu, ko Te Pai o Hauraki ngā marae. Ko Tainui te waka.
Ko Hoturoa te tangata.
Ko Jo Shelford tōku ingoa.
Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou katoa e te whānau whānui o Hauraki.
Nō reira e te whānau Turou Hawaiki
nā Io ki a koutou katoa

Winter can bring its share of sniffles and colds, but it can also unleash more serious illnesses such as the flu.
While a cold virus will likely last a few days, the flu, if left untreated, can lead to dangerous complications such as pneumonia and can even be fatal.
Those most susceptible tend to be the elderly, pregnant women and those with an ongoing medical condition such as diabetes or heart or lung condition, but it can affect anyone, no matter how fit and healthy they are.
Immunising against the flu helps prepare your immune system to fight the flu and can lessen the chance of someone not only getting it, but of spreading it around family, work colleagues, older relatives, or someone with a medical condition.
It takes two weeks to develop immunity once a person has the vaccine.
Pregnant women are at greater risk of complications from the flu and they can be vaccinated at any time during their pregnancy.
The vaccine can also pass immunity to the baby which can protect them in their first six weeks when they are too young to be vaccinated.
The flu is an airborne disease and very contagious, so if someone has the flu they should stay home from work to reduce spreading it around. Symptoms include a cough, headache, fever or chills, body aches and pains, fatigue and generally feeling miserable.
The flu is a severe respiratory illness which is different to a cold, so if people think they have a flu they need to seek medical treatment immediately.
The Flu vaccination is free for all Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki enrolled clients who are pregnant; 65 years and over; have longterm health conditions such as severe asthma, cancer and diabetes; and for children four years and under who have a history of respiratory illness.
Other enrolled clients are $20; unregistered $40.
