- That's it!
Winners will be picked randomly after the event on Monday 18 October and will be notified by email.
Share with us that you've been vaccinated on social media

Why get vaccinated?
Vaccination is our best line of defence to combat Covid-19. You will have seen how difficult it is to contain the current Delta variant outbreak, which is why the country is in lockdown.
Consequently, the vaccine rollout has become more urgent and we really want to make sure everyone is protected as quickly as possible. You need to have two doses of the vaccine.
We can do this.
Please note, advice from the Ministry of Health is that vaccination will give you greater protection against catching Covid-19. And if you do contract Covid-19 after you’ve been fully vaccinated, you will experience a milder form of the virus. If you have any questions about the Covid-19 vaccine, please go to the Government’s Covid-19 website.
Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand aged 12 years and over can book their free COVID-19 vaccination now.
Vaccines also available at KEIC UniChem
The UniChem Pharmacy in Kate Edger Information Commons is also administering Covid-19 vaccinations. If you are unable to attend the pop-up event, or will need to follow-up for your second vaccine, you can also get vaccinated on campus here.
Find your nearest vaccination centre
If you are not near campus, but still want to get vaccinated, there are vaccine centres around the country, who are ready and willing to make an appointment with you, or allow walk-ins.
A platform developed by a team of nine University of Auckland and AUT alumni just one month ago has already helped 70,000 Kiwis find and book their Covid vaccinations. Vaxx.nz is a tool that helps people locate an available vaccination centre near them quickly and easily, with the aim of helping New Zealand reach its 90% vaccination target as soon as possible.
