A booster dose is especially recommended for 16 and 17-year-olds who are at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19, including those who are immunocompromised (or living with a family member who is immunocompromised) and Māori and Pasifika rangatahi.
You can check when you are due for a booster by visiting mycovidrecord.nz or referring to your purple vaccination card, if you have one. If your second dose was six months ago you can get your booster by:
- Finding a walk-in vaccination centre at BookMyVaccine.nz.
- From 14 April, 16 and 17-year-olds will be able to book an appointment on BookMyVaccine.nz.
- COVID-19 vaccines will continue to be available at mobile and pop-up vaccination clinics.
For more information on the booster dose for this age group, visit www.southernhealth.nz/COVID19/vaccine
