COVID-19 Vaccination

  • Anyone currently eligible can access
  • Make an appointment

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your kaumātua and whānau from the effects of the virus. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccines and eligibility visit Ministry of Health - COVID-19 vaccines

The majority of routine vaccinations can now be administered before, after, or at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccinations. The exception to this is the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine where a 7-day gap before or after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 is advised. If you have any questions, please discuss with your health provider.

Description

Awarua Whānau Services delivers Kaupapa Māori services that provide for whānau wellbeing by servicing their social, health and educational needs.  We work with whānau to achieve a positive and healthy change - Hapai ake to whānau ki nga taumata oranga.  

As a charitable trust and a non-government organisation (NGO) we offer services to the community that are accessible to clients from all social and cultural groups within Murihiku, however we are primarily funded to work with Māori. Our target groups are from conception to Kuia and Kaumātua (elderly), and we offer a range of social, health and early childhood education services. The geographical area we cover encompasses all of Southland.
