Vaccine Programme Information

COVID-19 Vaccine Update 


At the moment we’re vaccinating people: 

  • aged 50 years and over, or kuia, kaumātua and their whānau (the people they live with and their carers), and people
  • aged 16-64 and have a relevant underlying health condition, or 
  • are disabled, or 
  • are in a position of caring for a person with a disability, or 
  • are pregnant (any trimester). 

If you are in the above groups, you can expect to receive an invitation from Northland DHB to book a vaccination appointment.

If you do not receive an invitation, please contact the national booking 0800 number - 0800 28 29 26.

Please note that Northland DHB 0800 booking number is no longer active. 


  • You do not need to know your National Health Index number (NHI) to book an appointment.  
  • It is really important that you provide your full legal name – not an alias name or a nickname. 
  • Please do not turn up any earlier than 15 minutes prior to your appointment and we ask that you respect our COVID-19 Vaccination Community Clinic staff, who are working tirelessly to vaccinate our community.

Pharmacy & General Practice

There are a number of pharmacies and general practices in Northland currently offering the COVID-19 vaccination programme. If your pharmacy or GP is offering the programme they will be in touch with you directly.

Nationally, the vaccine rollout for Group 4 will be in age bands and will start on 28 July.

• The first age band is people aged 60 years and over — they will be able to book their vaccinations from 28 July.

• The next age band is people aged 55 and over — bookings for this age band will open 2 weeks later, on 11 August.

Once it’s your turn, you can be vaccinated at any time — there’s no cut-off. You can register your details on Book My Vaccine any time from 28 July. This means that when it’s your turn, we will have your most up-to-date contact details and can send you an invitation to book your vaccinations.

Depending on vaccine supply and progress with other age groups, invitations will open up to people over 45 years from mid to late August, and from mid to late September for people 35 plus. Everyone else will be eligible from October.
