Who we are currently vaccinating

We are currently vaccinating Group 2. This group includes:

  • People working in the health system – in hospitals, GPs, pharmacies and the community – who interact with patients.
  • Frontline emergency service workers, such as police, fire and ambulance.
  • Everyone living in long-term residential care, including aged care, disability care and mental health care.
  • Older Māori and Pacific people living in the community, and the people who live with them.

Group 3 vaccinations start late May

We will be vaccinating people in Group 3 over the next few months. You do not need to do anything at the moment.

When it is your turn to book your appointment, we will let you know. This may be via text, your GP’s online system, by email, letter or phone call. This invitation might come from your GP, from the DHB, from a Māori or Pacific health provider, or from a disability organisation.
