Vaccine storage issue

Did you have your COVID-19 vaccination in the Queenstown Lakes or Central Otago areas between 1 December 2021 and 28 January 2022?

If you had your vaccination at a location other than a GP or a pharmacy, your vaccination may have been affected by a vaccine storage issue.

If you think this might be you, please call 0800 28 29 26 or email to check the status of your vaccination or for more information.

The Southern DHB wants to ensure that every affected person is fully informed. We have already spoken to over 92% of affected people by phone. Emails, letters, and SMS texts have also been sent to affected people.

People affected by the vaccine storage issue are encouraged to receive a replacement vaccination to ensure that they benefit from a high level of immunity against COVID-19.

There is no risk of harm to anyone who received a vaccine that was affected by this storage issue.

However, in these circumstances the vaccine is not able to offer or produce a reliable amount of protection against the COVID-19 virus.
