Appointment slots for this week’s drive-through COVID-19 vaccination events set for tomorrow, Friday and Saturday at the Greymouth Aerodrome are filling up fast.
All three events will be operating from 10am – 4pm. At this stage, we have capacity to deliver 800 vaccines each day and encourage anyone wanting to get vaccinated to hop on line and book an appointment.
Feedback from last Sunday’s event has been really positive with attendees saying that aside from it being a really well-run day by a friendly and efficient team, it was also a great way to get the whole whānau vaccinated all at once.
Vaccinations are by appointment only. People in your bubble may attend with you and if eligible can be vaccinated as well.
You can book online at www.BookMyVaccine.nz or by calling the National Booking team on 0800 28 29 26 (8am – 8pm, 7 days).
If you’re an essential worker, we have reserved spaces for you – just phone the National Booking team and they’ll book you in.
If you already had an appointment booked on either of these days at the Greymouth COVID-19 vaccination clinic, the location has been changed to the Greymouth Aerodrome on the same day and time. Those booked should have received a text, email or phone call to advise them of this location change. As drive-through events are suitable for cars or SUVs only, if you do not have either, please phone the National Booking team to reschedule.
We are currently planning drive-through events for other Coast communities. We will provide further information regarding these events once all the details have been confirmed.
Like our mobile clinics, our drive-through events are open to everyone including 12 – 15-year olds who can now be booked for a vaccination at the same time as their parent(s) or guardian(s). Remember, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect ourselves and our whānau.
Remember, if you are deciding to get your vaccination at a drive-through event:
