Safe and effective vaccines are an essential part of how we protect New Zealand and our Pacific neighbours from COVID-19.
Our COVID-19 vaccine strategy
The Government is making sure New Zealand has a range of options, so we can get the right vaccines and support our Pacific neighbours.
Making sure COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective
Before any vaccine is approved for use in New Zealand, it must meet international standards and local requirements for quality, safety and efficacy.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine
We are expecting enough vaccines for everyone in New Zealand. They will be free and voluntary for the general public.
