Waitematā DHB is only 125 first doses away from 90 percent of its eligible Māori population receiving one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Waitematā DHB will become the eighth DHB to achieve this milestone.
Season's Greetings from the Ministry of Health. We’re asking everyone to play their part to reduce the spread of the virus over the break.
The Ministry urges anyone with any symptoms that could be COVID-19, even if they’re away on holiday, to get a test and remain where they are until they receive a negative result and are feeling better. This applies as well to people who are vaccinated with even mild symptoms. For those away on holiday who test positive you will be contacted regarding your ongoing care.
Testing locations nationwide can be found on the Healthpoint website.
People who are out and about are asked to wear a mask and maintain physical distance in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor spaces and scan in using the COVID-19 Tracer app.
The vaccine remains our key defence against all variants of COVID-19, including Omicron. We continue to ask everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated, including people who are now eligible for a booster dose.
