Our best protection from severe symptoms and hospitalisation due to COVID-19 is getting vaccinated AND boosted. Whether you have had COVID-19 or not, the booster is vital for your future protection. Get your booster three months after your second vaccine. If you have had two vaccinations and contract COVID-19, you can also have your booster three months after you have recovered.

You can book online at www.BookMyVaccine.nz or call 0800 28 29 26 (8am – 8pm, 7 days per week).

*Please note, the Ministry of Health’s daily reported cases today on the West Coast may differ from those reported at a DHB or local public health unit level. This is because of different reporting cut off times and the assignment of cases between regions, for example when a case is tested outside their usual region of residence. These numbers also rely on people registering their positive unsupervised RAT test results.
