COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccines are available and free for everyone aged 5 and over.


COVID-19 vaccines additional doses 

COVID-19 additional doses provide an extra layer of protection to your previous vaccination and keep your immunity levels high. Additional doses use the Pfizer XBB 1.5 vaccine.

From 7 March 2024, we use the Pfizer XBB1.5 monovalent vaccine. This is an updated vaccine targeting recent Omicron strains. COVID-19 vaccines are free.

The vaccine produces an immune response against the Omicron subvariant, XBB.1.5.

Current evidence indicates the vaccine is more effective against Omicron subvariants than earlier vaccines. 


If you are 30 years of age and over, you can have an additional dose regardless of the number of vaccines you have already had. It is recommended:

  • you wait at least 6 months since you had COVID-19
  • at least 6 months since you had a COVID-19 vaccine.


Additional doses are especially recommended for:

  • people aged 65 and older
  • Māori and Pacific people aged 50 and older
  • residents of aged care facilities
  • severely immunocompromised people 
  • people aged 12 years and over who have a medical condition that increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
