The new Pharmacy Rehydration Initiative is aimed at preventing unnecessary hospital admissions for our vulnerable tamariki.

Check out the article below to see how our Pharmacies might be able to help you and your sick tamariki.

This initiative is available at all Pharmacies within the WDHB area, including the rural Bulls, Marton, Taihape and Ohakune regions.

Whanganui Pharmacies in partnership with the Whanganui DHB have banded together and developed a progressive health initiative aimed at preventing unnecessary hospital admissions for our vulnerable tamariki.

The Pharmacy Childhood Rehydration Initiative aims to provide families with information and medication to help when their little ones get an upset tummy, vomiting or diarrhoea.

Children can get dehydrated very quickly when they have an upset tummy, often resulting in visits to the doctor or admission into hospital. The new initiative aims to reduce visits to general practice by providing instant access to information and rehydration solutions such as Pedialyte.

“Dehydration in children is a common presentation at medical centres, so we are aiming to provide families with the right advice and early treatment to help children recover,” says Gonville Health Pharmacist Leighton Souness. “This initiative is an example of how we can not only reinforce the worth the pharmacy within our communities, but also alleviate the stress on general practice.”

Gastroenteritis and dehydration is the third-highest ambulatory care-sensitive condition within the Whanganui District, with hospitalisation rates highest for Māori and Pasifika children. Giving Pedialyte or even just water in a quantity of 1ml per kg every 5 minutes can mean that the child can be on the road to recovery within a few hours.

The new rehydration initiative is available from 1 August 2021 to all children aged three months to 15 years. This service is free and is available at any Pharmacy in Whanganui District Health Board region including the rural areas i.e. Marton, Bulls, Taihape, and Ohakune.
“Dehydration in children is a common presentation at medical centres, so we are aiming to provide families with the right advice and early treatment to help children recover,” says Gonville Health Pharmacist Leighton Souness. “This initiative is an example of how we can not only reinforce the worth of the pharmacy within our communities but also alleviate the stress on general practice.”

Essential information about how to treat Tummy Bugs (Gastroenteritis) is available at your local pharmacy, Early Childhood Centres, Kōhanga Reo, and Schools. Plunket and Tamariki Ora will also have information.

The recent news relating to a traveller from Sydney who visited Wellington during the weekend has resulted in Wellington moving back to Alert Level 2 from 6 pm tonight, 23 June, until 11:59 pm on Sunday 27 June 2021. This includes the Wairarapa and Kāpiti Coast.

The rest of the country will remain in Alert Level 1.

Many people in our community travel to Wellington regularly; if you or someone you know was in Wellington between Saturday 19 June and Monday 21 June, please check the locations of interest and associated information on the covid19 website:
📲 https://covid19.govt.nz/alert.../regional-advice/wellington/.

➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

Let's all continue to do our part to keep COVID-19 away by:
✅ Staying home if you are unwell
✅ Maintain personal hygiene, including washing your hands, coughing into your elbow, and cleaning surfaces regularly.
✅ Use the NZ COVID tracer app everywhere you go

For more information and updates, head to the Unite against COVID-19 page.

The Wellington region will be at Alert Level 2 from 6pm on Wednesday 23 June until 11:59pm on Sunday 27 June. This includes Wairarapa and Kāpiti Coast.

A traveller from Sydney, who visited Wellington from Saturday 19 June until Monday 21 June, has tested positive for COVID-19 upon their return to Australia.

It is most likely they contracted the virus in Sydney before they arrived in New Zealand. Genome sequencing is underway in Australia to see if the case is linked to the current outbreak in Sydney.

People who have been at the locations of interest listed on our earlier post must isolate immediately and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 for advice on testing and isolating.

At Alert Level 2, you can go to work and school, but you should follow public health measures and consider others around you.

If you’re sick, stay home. Do not go to work or school. Do not socialise.

If you have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms, call your doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453 and get advice about being tested.

If you have been told to self-isolate you legally must do so immediately.

It’s important that you use basic hygiene measures, including washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into your elbow and cleaning surfaces.

Use the NZ COVID Tracer app if you can. This helps with rapid contact tracing if it’s required.

Keep your distance when outside your home. You should keep a distance of at least:

- 2 metres in public and in retail stores, like supermarkets and clothes shops
- 1 metre in most other places like workplaces, cafes, restaurants and gyms.

At Alert Level 2 the risk of COVID-19 being present in the community is higher. You legally must wear a face covering on public transport and on domestic flights. You are encouraged to wear face coverings in situations where physical distancing is not possible, like in shops.

At gatherings and events, there can be no more than 100 people at social gatherings, including weddings, birthdays, funerals and tangihanga.

At Alert Level 2 cafes, restaurants and bars can open and have customers on their premises. They legally must meet requirements to keep their customers safe.

The 3 S's will be in place if you're dining in.

- Seated — customers legally must be seated.
- Separated — keep at least 1 metre apart from other groups.
- Single server — each group will have only 1 server, where practical.

It’s World Immunisation Week, a great time to remember that vaccines are the most effective way to prevent infectious diseases. They prevent up to 3 million deaths worldwide each year.

Since vaccines were introduced, diseases like smallpox, polio and tetanus, which used to kill or disable thousands of people each year are now either eliminated or rare in New Zealand.

Vaccines help protect you and your community by keeping diseases from spreading to people who cannot take vaccines – this is called ‘community immunity’.

Vaccines undergo rigorous safety testing before being introduced and are monitored for side effects and adverse reactions afterwards.

Sometimes, vaccines cause mild side effects that will not last long – some people may feel a bit unwell or have a sore arm for a couple of days. In rare cases, some people can have a serious allergic reaction, but there are always medical staff on hand to provide treatment when this happens.
