Covid-19 vaccination

COVID-19 Vaccination

  • Pfizer vaccine (12+ years)
  • Anyone currently eligible can access
  • Make an appointment

Please email us on reception@tkhealth.co.nz for 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.
