MMC is running a Covid Community Vaccination clinic in the St Johns hall on Rawhiti Ave, Matamata;

All vaccinations must be booked by either;

1) Phoning 0800 282926

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.

Covid-19 testing

Designated GP Practice

We are a designated COVID-19 testing practice. You do not need to be an enrolled patient to get a test.  

To book a test please phone (07) 8819102 and advise reception.

All patients coming for testing must wear a mask and remain in your car as this is a drive up service. The testing will be done at the rear carpark accessed down the Ambulance driveway.

The MMC Nurses and GP's will be conducting the tests. Please be patient as our crew will go as fast as possible while maintaining  safety for all.

Results will be available 3 days later from your normal GP practice.

Kia kaha!
