Here is where you’ll find information on when and how to get your free Covid-19 vaccine in our rohe.
Vaccinations at our border commenced in March 2021. We have been vaccinating those living and working in high-risk areas, such as our Frontline Healthcare Workers, and those living and working in Aged Residential Care Facilities.
We are currently working to vaccinate those most at risk of becoming very sick should contract COVID-19. This includes Māori and Pacific Kaumatua and their whānau. We are also currently taking bookings from anyone aged over 65 years living in Western Bay of Plenty (Waihi to Otamarākau), Rotorua and Lakes districts & Taupo.
Vaccination of the general population is expected to start in the second half of 2021 - check back regularly for the latest updates.
