Get vaccinated at Pihanga Health

The best way to keep yourself and your whānau protected from COVID-19 is to get both doses of the vaccine.

Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand aged 12 and over can get their free COVID-19 vaccination now. The more of us get vaccinated, the sooner we can get back to doing things we all enjoy.

How to get your vaccine:

  1. Visit Pihanga Health any time we’re open – you don’t need an appointment.
  2. If you want to book a time, you can call us directly on 0800 744 2642, head over to the Book My Vaccine website,  or call the booking hotline on 0800 282 926.
  3. Visit one of our pop-up vaccination sites – you can find out where we will be doing these at the Pihanga Health Facebook page.
  4. Book our mobile vaccination van to come to your work, sports club, family barbeque, or wherever there are a group of people who want to get vaccinated.
  5. Make sure you get your second jab. We will be calling to remind you three weeks after your first dose.

 

The Vaccine Van

We know it can sometimes be tough fitting a visit to the doctor in with your mahi or caring for whānau. That’s why we’ve got a vaccine van that can come to you – either to your work, to your sports club, to your street, your farm, anywhere there are a few people who need a shot.

We’ll come along, chat about the vaccine and answer any questions, then get everyone vaccinated!

If you want to book, or to find out more about the vax van, contact us and we’ll get you sorted.

 

Do you own or run a business?

You can help ensure your team stays healthy, your workplace stays open, and you stay ahead of any government mandates. Get in touch with us and we’ll work out a time that suits you – doesn’t matter if you’re in the back blocks, or you’d like a visit after hours.

 

Pop-up vaccination sites:

Keep an eye on this page for updates about where our next pop-up vaccination sites will be.

Boosters:

COVID-19 booster doses are now available. You can get a booster if you are fully vaccinated and it has been at least six months since your second dose. This helps boost your immunity to combat different variants, and is especially important if you have pre-existing conditions.

Unlike people getting their first or second jabs, if you’re getting a booster please make a booking, either at the Book My Vaccine website or by calling on 0800 744 2642. We need to make sure it has been six months, and check which vaccine you got the first time around.

Information about the COVID-19 vaccine

There’s a lot of stuff about the vaccine floating around the internet, so it can be hard to work out what’s real and what’s fake news. The most important things to know are:

  • The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is safe to take.
  • It is effective at preventing you getting sick with COVID-19.

There is plenty of good information that is backed up by evidence at the official sites, or you can contact us if you’re worried or have questions.
