Vaccination Roll-out

FOR NORTHLAND AND AUCKLAND

Kia ora!

Get vaccinated on Super Saturday – 16 October!

We’re pulling out all the stops in Te Tai Tokerau and Tāmaki Makaurau to support a national day of vaccination this Saturday.

Most vaccination centres have extended opening hours, and free ice cream, sausage sizzles, live music and spot prizes are just some of the fun on offer at events across the region.

Vaccinations are free for everyone aged 12 and over.

Find out where you can get vaccinated on Super Saturday in Auckland here, or Northland here.

Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

The Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty) is a mRNA-based (messenger ribonucleic acid) vaccine.

It does not contain any live, dead or deactivated viruses. There are no animal products in this vaccine.

Summary of ingredients

The Pfizer vaccine contains:

  • messenger RNA encoding SARS-CoV-2 spike protein
  • lipid nanoparticle – a stabilised fat-based bubble to protect and carry the mRNA into our cells
  • salt buffers – to maintain the pH of the vaccine
  • sucrose – to protect the vaccine while in storage.

Full list of ingredients and more information

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your kaumātua and whānau from the effects of the COVID-19 virus. It’s one way we can protect the welfare and wellbeing of our communities from COVID-19.

It is not mandatory for the general public. You can choose whether to get vaccinated.

COVID-19 can cause serious illness or death in some people. The COVID-19 vaccine stimulates your body’s immune system to produce antibodies and other proteins that will fight the virus if you’re exposed to it.

The Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty) is an mRNA vaccine that contains the genetic code for an important part of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus called the ‘spike protein’. Spike proteins are the little projections on the surface of the virus.

  1. Once you’ve had the vaccine, your body reads the genetic code and makes copies of the spike protein.
  2. Your immune system detects these spike proteins and learns how to recognise and fight against COVID-19. It knows it needs to attack the virus to protect it from spreading in your body.
  3. The genetic code then gets broken down and removed very quickly and easily by our body.

Find out how mRNA vaccines work, how it’s given and what the Pfizer vaccine is made up at COVID-19: How the vaccine works.

How does the vaccine work? | Ministry of Health NZ (video)

New Zealand's medicines safety authority Medsafe assesses applications for all new medicines. This includes vaccines.

For Medsafe to recommend approval for use in New Zealand, a medicine must meet international standards and local requirements for quality, safety and effectiveness.

This is the same process used to assess other medicines, like the flu vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine has been used successfully by millions worldwide. It continues to be monitored for safety.

Vaccine development and safety

The COVID-19 vaccine is highly effective if people have both doses. Studies show that about 95% of people who have received both doses of the vaccine are protected against getting COVID-19 symptoms.

That means once you are fully vaccinated you are far less likely to fall seriously ill.

Locations of vaccination centres in Northland and Auckland

For the best protection, it's important to get 2 doses of the vaccine. The standard gap between doses is now 6 weeks or more.

We are extending the standard gap because it allows us to give 1 dose (partial protection) to a larger number of people faster.

Early findings from a small number of well-designed studies show that an extended gap between doses of the Pfizer vaccine gives at least an equally robust immune response.

There will be some exceptions. For example, if you are on a specific clinical treatment plan or are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, you may be advised to have a shorter gap between doses.

The minimum gap between doses will continue to be 21 days.

If the gap between your appointments is less than 6 weeks

If you have already booked and the gap between your appointments is less than 6 weeks, you can keep the second appointment or choose to change it.

The important thing is to get 2 doses of the vaccine to be fully vaccinated.

If you've already been fully vaccinated

If you have already been fully vaccinated and had your 2 doses closer together than 6 weeks, you have received your best protection.

Studies show that about 95% of people who have received both doses of the vaccine are protected against getting COVID-19 symptoms.

Change the date and time of your booking by following the instructions on your booking confirmation.

Alternatively, you can change your booking date or time at Book My Vaccine or by calling the COVID Vaccination Helpline on 0800 28 29 26.

On the day

When you arrive at the vaccination centre, you will be given a mask to wear.

There are five key stages in the vaccination process when you arrive at the centre:

  • Sign in
  • Register
  • Give the ok
  • Get vaccinated
  • Observation

See what happens when you arrive at the vaccination centre by watching the video Getting your COVID-19 vaccination.

The vaccination process will take about 35 minutes. This includes the 15 minutes after you have the vaccine where you must stay in the observation area before you can leave.

The vaccination centres have accessibility options to support you and your whānau.

Accessibility information by vaccination centre

Sign language interpreters are available on request. Email NRHCCVAXENQUIRIES@adhb.govt.nz to book your vaccination appointment and sign language interpreter at the same time.

If you haven't had your first dose, or you have transportation or mobility issues, a free taxi service through Auckland Coop Taxis (Blue Bubble) is available to assist you.

How to access the taxi service

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

  • 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.

You are welcome to bring whānau or support people with you when you visit a community vaccination centre. You don't need to book and your whānau (12 years and over) can get vaccinated at the same time.

If you’re unwell and cannot make your appointment, you’ll need to reschedule it as soon as possible.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment(s) you can:

  • mange your appointments through BookMyVaccine.nz

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, get a test and stay at home until you get your results. You can be vaccinated once you have a negative test.

There are a few easy steps to prepare for the day.

  • If you have it, bring the NHI number of everyone in your car who will be getting vaccinated. Learn how you can find this at Ministry of Health – Where can I find my NHI number?
  • Only come by car, please do not come on foot, bike or motorbike.
  • Prepare some snacks and water in case there is a bit of wait.
  • Make sure you are wearing clothes that allow easy access to the top of the arm where you’ll get your vaccination.
  • Have masks for everyone in the car.
  • If you have more than four people in your car to be vaccinated, we may only be able to vaccinate those closest to the windows. There is a slow lane to allow for larger vehicles with more people, but there may be a significant wait for this vaccination lane as you will be asked to leave your vehicle for the vaccination.

If you don’t have a car

We recommend you make a booking at a Vaccination Centre by calling 0800 28 29 26.

Like all medicines, the vaccine may cause side effects in some people. This is the body’s normal response and shows the vaccine is working.

Side effects are usually mild, don’t last long and won’t stop you from having the second dose or going about your daily life. Learn more at COVID-19 vaccine: After your vaccination.

Community vaccination events

Our vaccination buses are on the road around Tāmaki Makaurau every day. There's no need to book, just bring your whānau down and we'll take care of the rest.

Tāmaki Makaurau pulling out all the stops for Super Saturday vaccination drive

Tāmaki Makaurau pulling out all the stops for Super Saturday vaccination drive

People will get a whole lot more than a vaccine dose this Saturday, with free ice cream, sausage sizzles, live music and spot prizes on offer at many vaccination centres and pop-up events being held across the city.

Super Saturday, the nationwide drive is aimed at capturing those yet to get their first dose, or those who are due for their second. In Auckland, 13 per cent of the eligible population is still yet to get their first dose.

Opening hours across the majority of the region’s 16 community vaccination centres and drive-throughs have been extended especially for the day. Among them is the CBD vaccination centre, which is being donned with rainbow decorations and there will be live music, a sausage sizzle and spot prizes. At Albany, there will be free coffee, a Mr Whippy truck visit, spot prizes and chocolate fish handed out to those who receive their dose.

Many of the mobile vaccination buses and vans – all run by Māori and Pacific provider partners – will be out and about in the community. Details on times, locations and giveaways are listed below.

Celebrities, including sports stars and TV personalities, will be making appearances at some sites throughout the day.

More than 70 general practices and over a dozen pharmacies involved in the vaccine roll-out are also opening their doors especially for the day. Among them is Mairangi Medical Centre, whose staff are dressing up to a “Save Our Summer” theme and Papatoetoe Family Doctors, whose staff are handing out free hot chickens alongside every vaccine dose.

And up to a dozen pop-up events are happening across the city, the details of which are outlined below.

Air New Zealand is also transforming one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets into a vaccine clinic, offering the opportunity for 300 people to get vaccinated in business class. Those spots have already been filled.

Northern Region Health Coordination Centre (NRHCC) Programme Director Matt Hannant is urging anyone who is still to get their first dose to come along, as well as people who need their second dose. Second doses can be given 21 days after the first dose.

“It’s eight weeks to go until summer, so we’re encouraging everyone to get their vaccinations this weekend to help ensure you’re set to get out and about and enjoy the summer.

“Come on down, grab a sausage or a coffee, and bring along any whānau with you too.

“Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect you and your whānau from COVID-19. With COVID-19 cases in the community, this weekend is a really important time to be getting answers to your questions and getting vaccinated.

“If you’re still feeling a bit unsure, you can have a chat to one of our friendly medical staff who will be on hand to answer questions at any of our community vaccination centres.”

People can find their nearest vaccination centre or pop-up event at vaccinateforauckland.nz
