The Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-outThe Covid-19 Vaccination
Roll-out

FOR NORTHLAND AND AUCKLAND

Kia Ora!

Welcome to the home for the Covid-19 vaccination roll-out in Northland and Auckland.

Here is where you’ll find information on when and how to get your free Covid-19 vaccine in our region. The first group of people to be vaccinated are our border and MIQ workers and their households. They are our first line of defence against Covid-19 and protect us every day – so it is important we protect them and the people they live with first.

We have also now started vaccinating the frontline health and disability workers who protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

General vaccination is expected to start in the second half of 2021 - check back regularly for the latest updates.

Marae Vaccination Centre opens

Marae Vaccination Centre opens

Māori engagement across Tamaki Makaurau has been boosted with the opening of the first Māori –led community vaccination centre for the Northern region.

The centre is a partnership between Manurewa Marae and the Whānau Ora Community Clinic with the support of the Northern Regional District Health Boards.

Manurewa Marae is situated in an area with the highest density Māori population for metro Auckland. Vaccinations are by invitation through a booking system and will initially focus on vaccinating Kaumātua, their kaimahi Māori (Workers) and frontline staff and patients from Te Manu Aute, the Primary Health Care Clinic with chronic health conditions.

The establishment of the vaccination centre at Manurewa Marae was endorsed by Manawhenua I Tamaki Makaurau who supports the protection of kaumātua and those with underlying health conditions.

Marae Chair, Rangi McLean, offered up his arm to be the first vaccinated in the hope that those who are unsure will trust that the vaccine will protect against COVID-19.

“I’m excited to finally see the rollout happening and to be able to share it with our people is encouraging. I couldn’t ask them to get vaccinated if I wasn’t prepared to do it myself. It’s the start of getting back to normal - well I hope so,” he said.

Track our progress as we immunise the Northern Region

The first phase of New Zealand’s largest immunisation programme kicked off on Saturday 20 February, when the first group of border and MIQ workers were vaccinated in Auckland.

In the following days vaccination centres for bo rder and MIQ workers have opened around the country. In Auckland we have vaccination centres at the Ports of Auckland, Auckland Airport, Jet Park quarantine facility, and three other managed isolation facilities. Vaccination centres will be open at two port locations in Northland from early March.

These vaccination centres will continue to operate until border and MIQ workers have all had the opportunity to have two doses of the Pfizer vaccine. These workers are receiving information on how to schedule their vaccination directly as well as other important information on the extra level of protection this vaccine offers for them, their whānau and community.
