Study Status: In season

The 2024 flu season runs from Monday 29th April.

Please complete your ILI survey each week.  You can update your survey multiple times within a week if your symptoms change - please use the most recent link you have been sent to complete the survey. 

Only do a self-swab if you have been asked to do so by the WellKiwis team.

If your swab is positive for influenza, we will contact you to arrange collection of two blood samples, the first within 2 weeks of the positive result, and the second 3-6 weeks after the positive result.

eGift Cards

To recognise your time and effort in providing samples for the WellKiwis study, you are given a $30 egift card for each sample provided. If you have any issues using your egift card, please click the below link for instructions:
