Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your kaumātua and whānau from the effects of the virus. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccines and eligibility visit Ministry of Health - COVID-19 vaccines Covid-19 vaccines can be administered before, after, or at the same time as other national schedule vaccines. When the Nuvaxovid vaccine is given at the same time as the Shingrix shingles vaccine or the Fluad Quad flu vaccine, there may be a chance of experiencing a stronger post-vaccination response and you should discuss this with your vaccinator. Getting Covid-19 Vaccinations and boosters is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your kaumaatua and whaanau from the effects of the virus. A second Covid-19 booster is now highly recommended and available for those at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
