Vaccinated community

This information hub is available for use by community groups, workplaces or individuals who would like to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine used in New Zealand and preparing for a COVID-19 vaccination. 

We welcome you to refer to any of the materials listed. If you would like to host a workshop with people in your group or workplace, we suggest you work through this material together including time for discussion and reflection (allow for a one hour session).

The Immunisation Advisory Centre is a trusted independent provider of evidence-based vaccine information in Aotearoa. We work closely educating the vaccinator and broader sector workforce supporting the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
