Counties Manukau Health are organising a special walk-in pop-up vaccination clinic for the school community – students, parents, staff and whānau. The new Delta strain of the virus is highly infectious which means it can be passed on from person to person much more easily than ever before. The vaccine is the best way that we can keep our community safe from COVID 19 and reduces the risk of becoming very ill from the virus (the likelihood of ending up in hospital from COVID 19 is significantly reduced).
Everyone over the age of 12 is now eligible to have their FREE COVID 19 jab. This special pop-up clinic is a great opportunity for our school to get together and help protect the community from COVID 19.
You do not need to book – simply turn up on the day!
The event is happening at the school on Saturday, 20th November, 9am – 5pm.
On the day, make sure you and your whānau have face coverings and if possible, bring your NHI number.
We are keen to answer any questions you may have about the vaccine and how you can become vaccinated. Please email or call our school health nurses who will answer your questions as best they can. Ph: 09 276 4319 ext 849
We will provide more information about the school vaccination event shortly but for now, please have a look at some of this information provided.
Here is some information about the vaccine from the Ministry of Health:
