In response to recent COVID-19 cases identified in the community, New Zealand has moved into Lockdown

For BOTH the Unichem Waiuku and Unichem Waiuku Medical pharmacies things will change a little to how we normally operate. Here is a reminder:

 

  • MASK wearing in the Pharmacy is MANDATORY - Staff and customers must wear masks at essential services, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, dairies, and service stations. PLEASE HAVE A MASK ON WHEN YOU ENTER OUR STORE.
  • ** DO NOT ** come into the pharmacy if you have just had a Covid test. You will be provided with a paper slip that has a phone number on it to contact us, so we can help if you need a prescription. Call us if you need assistance first.
  • Restricted customer numbers in-store. This is due to the 2-metre social distancing required.
  • Increased sanitisation, hygiene, and cleaning protocols ( please sanitise on entry at one of our sanitiser stations )
  • Anyone who has cold or flu symptoms should get a test and stay home until you have a negative test result. You can find your local testing facility at https://www.healthpoint.co.nz/covid-19/
  • Scan in using the Covid scanning app or sign in if you don’t have the app. Turn on the blue tooth function on your tracing app
  • Screens will be up to limit exposure
  • Contactless payment to be used wherever possible
  • There may be longer wait times so please be patient
  • We ask you to please remain calm. Do not come in unless it is urgent. Our phone lines are inundated and our team is working hard to manage all enquiries.
  • WHEN PICKING UP A PRESCRIPTION, please phone ahead. That way we can give you a rough time frame as to when you can expect your script to be ready. Upon pick up, you will be required to wait outside the pharmacy or in your car until your script is ready.
  • Locations of interest are being updated as new information becomes available at https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-health-advice-public/contact-tracing-covid-19/covid-19-contact-tracing-locations-interest

  • Help keep our pharmacy staff safe! If you are unwell DO NOT go into the pharmacy - call ahead for advice or to arrange prescriptions.
  •  

No one wants to be here again, but we are so PLEASE remember to be KIND, PATIENT, and know we are ALL trying to do the best we can. Please be compassionate and check in on people who are by themselves. There is always heightened anxiety for some around this time

 

We've been here before, we know how to handle this. Keep calm, be kind, and we will get through this together again. We're here to help.

 

Thank you and stay safe Waiuku!

Extended Information:

Q What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and Omega-3, -6 and -9 EFAs?
A
 Polyunsaturated fats consist of fatty acids, many of which the body needs in the same way as it needs vitamins and minerals, to maintain a wide range of normal functioning and health. The body can synthesise some of these fatty acids on its own, but others (called “essential” fatty acids or EFAs) need to be obtained through the diet.

EFAs are categorised into different families – Omega-3, Omega-6 or Omega-9 – depending on their chemical structure. Fish and seafood provide an important source of two especially important Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids: EPA & DHA, which are not found in plant-based Omega 3-rich oils such as Flaxseed oil. The body requires these critical essential fatty acids to protect joints, heart and brain health, support normal blood circulation, and maintain healthy skin. Omega-6 EFAs tend to be found in many plant-based oils, and Omega-9
EFAs most commonly occur in olive oil.

Q What is the optimal level of Omega-3 EFA intake?
A
 Essential Fatty Acids do not operate in isolation in the body, but often interact with each other, balancing out each other’s effects. This means that optimal Omega-3 intake is often described in terms of a ratio of balance with Omega-6 EFAs, rather than an absolute figure on its own. Nutritional research suggests that the body requires an Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFA ratio of 4:11 or less to maintain general health and wellbeing.

Q What are some of the symptoms of low Omega-3 EFA levels?
A
 The typical Western diet contains little fish or seafood, and provides an Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFA ratio of 15:12, which is significantly out of balance with the research-suggested level. This can result in low Omega-3 EFA levels, which may cause joint discomfort, swelling and stiffness; blood pressure and cholesterol imbalances; poor heart health; dry itchy skin; slowed wound healing; poor memory and concentration; and mood
disturbances. Because of this, most people will benefit from increasing their dietary Omega-3 consumption.
