The COVID-19 Immunisation Programme is the biggest single logistical exercise our health system has ever tackled and we hope Taranaki residents do their part to make it a success. COVID-19 vaccines are free and the first people to get protected in Taranaki will be border workers and those they live with.
Use the new online tool on the Unite Against COVID-19 website to find out when you can expect to get your free COVID-19 vaccine.

Our Public Health Nurses were the first to get a COVID-19 vaccination this week in preparation for the Immunisation Programme roll out starting in Taranaki. It’s important our nurses are protected before they start vaccinating. Here’s our clinical nurse coordinator Rachel Court taking one for the team!
Taranaki border workers will be some of the first people to get the free COVID-19 vaccine, with around 60 workers booked in for vaccination appointments already.
