Protect the people who are at risk of getting very sick from COVID-19
Who – approximately 1,700,000
- People in New Zealand aged 65+, people with relevant underlying health conditions4, and disabled people.
- Adults in custodial settings.
- We know that age and certain underlying health conditions and disabilities mean that it is much more likely that people will get very sick if they catch COVID-19.
- International evidence has shown that COVID-19 can spread quickly among people in custody.
We will offer different options to make getting the vaccine as easy as possible, including through Māori and Pacific providers, GPs, pop-up centres, pharmacies, medical and hauora centres and community clinics.
