Vaccines are free for everyone in New Zealand aged 12 and over.
Vaccines are voluntary so you will not be forced to have a vaccine. Note, the term “Workers” includes both paid and unpaid workers.
Booking your vaccine
You may get a booking invitation from the Ministry of Health or your health provider.
You can ignore these if you have already booked your appointments or received your vaccination.
The easiest way is to book online through Book My Vaccine.
