All Aucklanders aged 65 and over will receive a Covid vaccination invite within the next week.
Four new community vaccination centres are also due to open in Albany, Tamaki, Pukekohe and Takanini.
More than 110,000 people aged 65+ in the Auckland region will have received an invitation by text or email by Friday, health officials announced today.
The invitations will be issued automatically via text message or email, so people will not need to do anything until they receive their invitation.
All remaining Group 3 invitations, including the 164,000 Aucklanders who have underlying health conditions, will be sent by mid-July.
“We’re really excited to be extending our programme further to keep more of our older population safe,”said Matt Hannant, programme lead at Northern Region Health Coordination Centre.
“The vaccines are free and an important part of keeping our community safe and protected from Covid-19”
