Thank you to everyone for your patience with the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign. We have been working to a fairly uncertain timeframe and are working hard with Capital and Coast DHB and our PHO on bringing this to you as soon as possible.
Given the sheer number of vaccinations needing to be given, we are investing in expanding our dedicated Vaccination Pop-up into the old Paper Plus site in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre (between Countdown and Muffin Break). This change will significantly increase the number of vaccines we will be able to deliver, which means we will be well placed to support our patients initially and then also the wider northern suburbs community as needed over the next 6 months.
The good news is that we expect to start booking high priority patients in the very near future, followed quickly by the rest of Group 3 before eventually being able to offer vaccinations to everyone as vaccine availability allows.
At this time, please do not contact us about booking your vaccination appointments unless we have contacted you specifically. We will be contacting high priority patients directly (either by phone, text, email or letter).
There will be another update once the wider Group 3 are able to book and we will then advise the process for booking. As you can imagine there will be a significant number of bookings to handle and we are in the process of ensuring that we have the resources to manage that.
Thanks again for your patience and rest assured that we are working hard to get the vaccine to you.
Early vaccination requests
There may be some limited cases where you are able to get vaccinated before your expected group on compassionate grounds. You will need to apply for this via the Ministry of Health so if you think this applies to you then please go to the Early COVID-19 Vaccination website and follow the instructions form there. Please note that we cannot determine your eligibility for you or give you the vaccine without confirmation early access has been granted.
