Te whakaako i te pūnaha awhikiri Training our immune system

Like aunty and niece practicing mau rākau, we need to keep our immune system trained up to recognise and fight the virus. The KOWHEORI-19 vax is still our best defence. The protection is even stronger with a booster dose.

Mai rā anō, ka haumaru tātau i te whānau.

As we have always done, we protect our whānau.

Te matatūtanga Being vigilant

KOWHEORI-19 is still in our communities. It’s important that we stay matatū. Here are some simple things we can do to protect ourselves and whānau.

  • Continue to wear your face mask in public indoor places, like shops or hauora clinics.
  • If you’re sick, stay home and get tested for COVID-19.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19 and are concerned about your hauora, call your doctor or Healthline. Don’t try to tough it out if you get seriously ill.

Vaccinations and RAT and PCR tests are available across the motu. Use our online map to find a kaupapa Māori clinic near you.
