We take walk-ins for your first and second vaccination, if you are coming in for your booster, please 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.

If you have any questions, please discuss with your healthcare provider.
