COVID-19 Southern Updates

The Southern health system is at Alert Level 1

Our services are operating as usual, and measures are in place to ensure hygiene and keep our patients and community safe. 

People in Group 3 will receive letters, emails and/or texts by July 23 with details of how to book your appointment. It will take us some time to work through this large cohort and booking slots will be available over the coming months. There will be enough vaccine for everyone.

If you’re in Group 3 and haven’t booked your vaccination already you can call the COVID Vaccination Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 between 8am and 8pm to book your vaccination.

Being able to trace your contacts if you have been exposed to COVID-19 is critical to being able to quickly isolate any cases that may emerge, and stop the virus from spreading in the community. Please download the NZ COVID tracer app and turn on Bluetooth functionality (a setting within the app), or use a diary and check-in wherever you go!
