Covid-19 vaccination

COVID-19 Vaccination

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

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.
