Please attribute the following to Philip Wheble, Senior Responsible Officer for the COVID-19 response, West Coast DHB:
Starting in early October, West Coast DHB will be holding a series of drive-through COVID-19 vaccination events in Westport, Hokitika and Greymouth.
The events will be operating from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the following locations on the dates specified:
We are offering vaccination appointments to everyone aged 12 and older. Remember, getting vaccinated is the best way to protect ourselves and our whānau.
You can book online at www.BookMyVaccine.nz or by calling the National Booking team on 0800 28 29 26 (8am – 8pm, 7 days). Vaccinations are free.
If you are planning to book in at one of our drive-through vaccination events, we are able to cater for passenger cars or SUVs as well as people who arrive on foot, bike/motorbike or on mobility scooters. Unfortunately, we cannot accept trucks, or other high-sided or wide vehicles at the drive-through centres.
If you are unable to attend any of these vaccination events, there are a number of other clinics available across the Coast including a walk-in ‘no appointment required’ option at our Greymouth and Westport clinics. Clinic details are updated weekly on the West Coast and Canterbury COVID-19 vaccination website – vaccinatecanterburywestcoast.nz
