How do I get my vaccine?

The vaccine roll-out is being handled in grouped stages. People at higher risk will be vaccinated first.

  • Group 1 – border and managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) workers and their household contacts.
  • Group 2 – high-risk frontline workers; those living in long-term residential care, older Māori and Pacific people being cared for by whānau, and those at high risk living in Counties Manukau DHB area.
  • Group 3 – People aged 65 or over; those who have a relevant underlying health condition; are pregnant; disabled people; adults in a custodial setting.
  • Group 4 – Everyone else in Aotearoa aged 16 and over.

If you are in stage/group 1 or 2, you will be contacted by your local health provider or employer. These stages are now in progress.

For stages/groups 3 and 4 your District Health Board will provide updates on where and when you can get the vaccine. There will be a range of places where you can get vaccinated, including community clinics, marae, pop-up venues and pharmacies.
