New Zealand’s

COVID-19 vaccine plan

We have a plan to provide a free vaccine to protect everyone in Aotearoa.
We’ve secured enough Pfizer vaccine for everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and over to get the two doses they need against COVID-19.

First, we’re protecting those most at risk of catching COVID-19 in their workplace. This will reduce the risk of future outbreaks and lockdowns. Next, we’ll vaccinate people most at risk of getting seriously sick or dying if they get the virus.

New Zealand’s vaccine plan is to:

  • put safety first with all COVID-19 vaccines
  • secure enough safe and effective vaccines to protect Aotearoa and the Pacific
  • protect Maori, Pacific peoples, and other groups at greater risk of COVID-19
  • make it easy for people to get vaccinated
  • ensure we are prepared for future outbreaks
  • support New Zealand’s contribution to global wellbeing.

The rollout at a glance

We’re rolling out the vaccine in stages. We’ve created four groups that everyone in the country aged 16 and over will fall under.

Dates and timings may change

Time frames are approximate and may overlap. The actual start dates will depend on when vaccines are delivered and whether there is community transmission at the time.
