Find out when you can get a vaccine

We have a plan to provide a free COVID-19 vaccine to protect everyone in New Zealand. People at greater risk will get the vaccine first.

How to use this tool

If you're 16 or over, answer these questions to find out when you can get a vaccine. Your result will tell you which group you’re probably in — Group 1, 2, 3, or 4 — depending on your age and situation.

These dates are estimates — the actual start times will depend on when vaccines are delivered. Changes may also happen if we get new information that affects how the rollout will work.

Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 vaccines will be free and voluntary for everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and over, regardless of their visa or citizenship status. Any information collected will not be used for immigration purposes.
