Getting vaccinated

Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand aged 12 years and over can get a free COVID-19 vaccination. It doesn’t matter what your visa or citizenship status is.

Getting vaccinated helps to protect your yourself, your whānau and your community.

You should not visit a vaccination centre if you:

  • have COVID-19 symptoms
  • have been told to self-isolate
  • are a close contact of someone with COVID-19
  • are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test

It is quick and easy to reschedule your appointment. Call 0800 28 29 26 or visit bookmyvaccine.nz.

If you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 you can get your vaccine after your 14 day isolation period has finished. You will need to have had a negative COVID-19 test and be symptom free before getting vaccinated.

If you have had COVID-19 you can get your first vaccination 4 weeks after leaving a managed isolation or quarantine (MIQ) facility. You can get the second vaccination 6 weeks after your first vaccination.

If you had your first dose of the vaccine before you got COVID-19 you should get your second dose 4 weeks after you leave the MIQ facility.

If you had 2 doses of the vaccine before you got COVID-19 you do not need another one at this time.
