COVID-19

Patient Information

There are many trusted, informative and knowledgeable websites, but these can be overwhelming with too much information to sift through.
If you are unsure about anything to do with Covid-19:

“Should I get a vaccination, how will it affect me”?
“Should I encourage my whanau or friends to have a vaccination”?
“If I feel unwell, should I get a covid -19 test even if I have been vaccinated”?
“Where should I go to get tested”?
“I have heard there is a third vaccine available, how can I get it”?

It is important that we are all vaccinated, here and across New Zealand. Please discuss with your doctor or nurse if you, or your whānau have any questions or concerns.
