Protect yourself and others from COVID-19

There is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. These simple steps can slow the spread of the virus — protecting yourself and others.

Get vaccinated as soon as you can

When you get vaccinated, you are not just protecting yourself. You are also doing your bit by reducing the risk of passing on COVID-19 to your whānau, friends and community. The Pfizer vaccine is free and available to everyone in New Zealand aged 12 and over.

Maintain physical distancing

Keep a safe distance from people you do not know while out and about. This will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns. Keep our persistence and socially distance.
