Everyone in New Zealand, aged 5 and over is eligible for their free COVID-19 vaccine.

Pop-up clinics are open for walk-ins. No appointments are needed and you don't need to be enrolled with a GP clinic.

Aged 5-11 years

Pop-ups are providing the child vaccine (5-11 years) unless specified otherwise beside the specific location.

However, we do advise where possible to book an appointment for tamariki aged between 5-11 years instead via the Book My Vaccine website to help manage stock levels of the child vaccine.

Aged 18 and over

Booster doses are available at pop-ups to anyone aged 18 and over who had their second dose at least four months ago. The Pfizer vaccine is the primary vaccine being used in New Zealand for booster doses, even if you had a different vaccine for your earlier doses.

Current pop-up opportunities

Pop-up opportunities will be added here as they are confirmed. If you don't see a pop-up near you, you can walk-in to our main vaccination centres in Nelson, Richmond or Blenheim.

Importance of vaccination against COVID-19

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your whānau and friends from the effects of the COVID-19 virus. Getting a booster shot maintains your body's immune response against all strains of the COVID-19 virus, including the highly transmissible Omicron and Delta strains.
