New Zealand's COVID-19 vaccine plan

We have a plan to provide a free vaccine to protect everyone in Aotearoa. 

Our plan is to:

  • put safety first with all COVID-19 vaccines
  • secure enough safe and effective vaccines to protect Aotearoa and the Pacific
  • protect Māori, Pacific peoples, and other groups at greater risk of COVID-19
  • make it easy for people to get vaccinated
  • ensure we are prepared for future outbreaks
  • support New Zealand’s contribution to global wellbeing.
  • Supporting the vaccine rollout

    We're planning the infrastructure, logistics, training and technology to support New Zealand’s largest immunisation programme. Read more
