Why you should get a booster

We are encouraging everyone aged 18 and over who has been fully vaccinated for at least 3 months to get a free booster now. Speeding up the booster rollout is one of several ways we are protecting Aotearoa New Zealand from the Omicron variant of Covid-19.

While a 2-dose course provides some protection against severe disease from the Omicron variant, a booster is likely offer greater protection by reducing the chance of more serious infection and the risk of transmitting it to others.

At this stage, there is no data available on how long you are protected against infection and disease following a booster dose. Health officials will continue to review information as it becomes available.

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.

Find your nearest vaccination centre

If you are not near campus, but still want to get your booster, 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 has already helped thousands of 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.
