    Te Tauihu vaccination clinics and information

    View a list of clinics in Te Tauihu from Te Piki Oranga.

    Bookings are essential. Call 0800 ORANGA (672 642).

    Te Piki Oranga can help with transport to and from the clinics, just let them know when you book your appointment.

    Young people aged 12–15 years are now eligible to book an appointment to be vaccinated when their parent or caregiver books an appointment.

    This makes it easier and more convenient for the whole family to be vaccinated at the same time. It also enables young people to have the support of their parents and caregivers at vaccination appointments.

    Walk-in and weekend clinics are also available in different locations around the motu.

    Find your closest clinic at

    Each person getting vaccinated will need a separate appointment.
