COVID-19 vaccination ready for disabled people and their carers

Great news! You can book your COVID-19 vaccine.

Your carers or support workers who haven’t had the COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to be vaccinated now too.

If you don’t know where to go to get your vaccine please have a look at this website. You can see the accessibility and transport options for each Vaccination Centre. You also have the option to be vaccinated at some GPs and pharmacies- find out which ones here.

We encourage you and your carers to make your booking now.

If you need help with your booking please phone the Vaccination Helpline on 0800 28 29 26 between 8:00am – 8:00pm, 7 days or you can email NRHCCVAXENQUIRIES@adhb.govt.nz. There is no option to book via text at the moment.

If you need a sign language interpreter please email NRHCCVAXENQUIRIES@adhb.govt.nz and we will be happy to book your vaccination appointment and sign language interpreter for you at the same time.

In some cases, people may be unable to leave their home to have a vaccination. In these cases, please contact the Vaccination Helpline on 0800 28 29 26 or NRHCCVAXENQUIRIES@adhb.govt.nz to register your details. We are still exploring the best way to reach out to this vulnerable sector of the community.

You can find out more about the vaccine and how it protects you and your community here. There are some links to videos which you may find helpful.

Thank you for helping to protect your whānau, aiga, community and the country from COVID-19. The more people who are vaccinated, the greater our protection as a community.
