Covid-19 vaccination

COVID-19 Vaccination

  • Pfizer vaccine (12+ years)
  • Anyone currently eligible can access

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

The majority of routine vaccinations can now be administered before, after, or at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccinations. The exception to this is the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine where a 7-day gap before or after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 is advised. If you have any questions, please discuss with your health provider.

The demand for this service is very high at the moment so please feel free to call the pharmacy if you have any questions. Alternatively, you can email the dispensary on dispensary.chartwell@lifepharmacy.co.nz for any general queries.
