Aotearoa Immunisation Week

Monday 29 May to Sunday 4 June is Aotearoa Immunisation Week. This is a great time to make sure everyone in your whānau is up to date with their vaccinations.

Where to get immunised

What is Aotearoa Immunisation Week

This week:

  • there are pop-up vaccination events across the motu
  • some vaccination sites have longer opening hours
  • is a great time to prepare for winter

Boost your whānau immunity this winter

Nasty bugs and diseases spread much more easily during winter as we spend more time inside in close contact with each other. 

We need higher rates of immunisation to stop our whānau and communities from getting sick.

Aotearoa Immunisation Week is a great time to book vaccinations with your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.

How to check what vaccines you might need

If you're not sure what vaccines you may need, you can:

  • check your Well Child Tamariki Ora My Health Book (previously called Plunket Book), or
  • phone and talk to your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.

If you’re not able to confirm an immunisation was given, your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider may advise you to play it safe and get immunised anyway. It’s better to be immunised and protected.

Where to get vaccinated during Aotearoa Immunisation Week

Find your region to see what events are on, where vaccination sites are, and what hours vaccination sites are open.
