As part of the New Zealand Government’s response and Unite Against COVID-19 campaign, MPP has launched a complementary campaign about receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
When you get vaccinated, you’re not just protecting yourself but also your aiga, friends, churches and community. The vaccine is free and available to everyone aged 16 and over. It will help to protect Aotearoa from COVID-19.
Watch our COVID-19 vaccine educational videos below to find out about the vaccination journey and how the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine works.
Everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand aged 12 and over can book their free COVID-19 vaccination now. You can book your vaccination online or by phone.
Parents or guardians who are eligible to book for a vaccination can also book a vaccination for any 12 to 15-year-olds in their whānau.
Each journey starts with one step, a step that can impact generations. COVID-19 is now part of our journey in Aotearoa. We now need to lean on our faith, culture, and come together as a family and a community to journey towards possibilities. Let's journey for each other. Get your COVID-19 vaccine.
How the COVID-19 vaccine works
The COVID-19 vaccine teaches your own immune system to recognize and fight off the virus. The vaccine cannot give you the disease. It does not contain the virus or anything that can affect your DNA. The vaccine has gone completely from your body within days leaving your immune system stronger and ready for action if COVID-19 comes near you. You'll need two doses at least three weeks apart to ensure you have the best protection. Make sure you get both doses of the vaccine. Find out more at www.covid19.govt.nz
