Who can get vaccinated
Everyone in New Zealand aged 5 or over can get a free COVID-19 vaccine. It does not matter what your visa or citizenship status is.
Pfizer is the preferred COVID-19 vaccine for use in New Zealand. If you are 18 years of age or older and either you cannot get the Pfizer vaccine or you want a different option, you can get the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Book My Vaccine
It is free, fast and easy to book or change your appointments using the website Book My Vaccine.
What to expect when you book online
It will take around 5 minutes to book your appointments.
Before you book, check the appointment availability map. It shows you where vaccination sites are, and how soon you can get an appointment.
If you want the AstraZeneca vaccine
Book My Vaccine will show a list of vaccination centres where AstraZeneca is available. Not all sites will have it, as Pfizer is the main vaccine we are using in New Zealand. You must be aged 18 or over to get AstraZeneca.
