How do I get my vaccine?

Last updated 30 July 2021

We are currently vaccinating those in Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4. 

If you live in the MidCentral District, which includes Palmerston North, Manawatū, Horowhenua, Ōtaki or Tararua, and you fit into Group 1, 2, or 3, you may have already been contacted by either your health provider or the MidCentral DHB to book your vaccine appointment.

If you haven’t been contacted, please call the COVID Vaccination Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 (8am to 8pm, 7 days) to book your vaccine.

Alternatively, you can call 0800 MDHB VAX (0800 6342 829) and we can help you book your appointment. 

To book via email, please email


If you fit into Group 4 (external website) , your vaccine rollout will be done in age bands. The first age band is people aged 60 years and over — they can book their vaccination appointments now. The next age band is people aged 55 and over — bookings for this age band will open on 11 August.

If you fit into Group 4, you will be notified when it is your turn to book your vaccination appointment.


Please note: We don’t currently have any vaccination drop-in clinics –  all vaccinations are by appointment only.
