Vaccination clinic at Akaroa Health (Te Hauora o Rākaihautū)

We’re pleased to say we’re opening a vaccination clinic at Akaroa Health on Wednesday 26th May.


The clinic will begin vaccinations for our community members most at risk (Groups 1 and 2); frontline health workers, people working and living in long-term residential care settings and Māori and Pacific people aged 55 and over. 

When it’s your turn to be vaccinated, we’ll contact you directly.

Our Government has secured enough vaccine so everyone aged 16 and over can be vaccinated, if they choose to be, before the end of the year.
