Nau mai, haere mai. 
Getting vaccinated protects our people and our whakapapa. It means that our kaumātua, our tamariki and our whānau are safe from COVID-19.

Where you can get vaccinated

We have vaccination centres around the motu, including Māori-led centres. Our kaimahi are here to kōrero and support you.

Māori-led vaccination centres

Free return taxi service

If you haven't had your first dose, or you have transportation or mobility issues, a free taxi service through Auckland Co-op Taxis (Blue Bubble) is available to assist you. All drivers for the free vaccination taxi service are double vaccinated for your safety. 

How to access the taxi service

Call the Vaccination Healthline on on 0800 28 29 26 to book.

  • Taxis operate between your residential address and the chosen community vaccination centre. This includes the airport drive-through vaccination centre in Māngere.
  • Large shuttle buses are available for whānau bubbles.
  • This service may not be appropriate for those with more serious health or mobility issues. These community members will be offered access to the home visits outreach programme.
  • Please wear a mask and scan the QR code when entering the vehicle. Whānau using the service need to be able to safely walk to and from the taxi, with the assistance of a carer if required.

"I may not like needles, but I'm doing it for you whānau".
