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.

We are vaccinating anyone over 12 years old and any whānau living in your household

We currently have a mobile vaccine team out in our community providing easy access to the vaccine, particularly to our most vulnerable people.

Please pre-register your interest to be vaccinated

  • If you are interested in receiving vaccines for you and your whānau bubble from our mobile vaccination unit, you can pre-register your interest and one of our team will be in contact to book your appointments. You don’t have to be a registered TMT patient to access the mobile service.

What's the process?
  • Once you’ve registered your interest, one of our mobile team will be in touch to confirm your appointment.
  • Our mobile unit is out in the community from Tuesday to Friday, making regular visits to these locations:
    - Maketu,
    - Maungatapu,
    - Manoeka,
    - Te Paamu and
    - Katikati
  • When you arrive for your vaccine appointment, you’ll need to bring your consent form with you. If you haven’t received one, they will be provided to you when you arrive. Once one of our nurses has checked you in for your appointment, you will be guided to a private room to receive your vaccine dose.
  • For the vaccine to be most effective, people are required to receive two doses around three to six weeks apart.
  • Once you’ve received your dose, you will be required to remain at the mobile unit for around 15 minutes for observation of any possible negative reactions. Hot drinks and snacks are provided.
