Help for COVID-19 vaccination travel
Everyone in New Zealand aged 12 years and over can get a vaccine.
Your decision to get vaccinated or not won't affect your payments from us, as long as you're still enrolled in your course and meeting your study requirements.
It's free to get vaccinated. There are a wide range of places where you can be vaccinated, including drive-through and walk-in centres, marae-based centres, general practices, community pharmacies and Pacific providers.

My Vaccine Pass
My Vaccine Pass is an official record of your COVID-19 vaccination status. Having a My Vaccine Pass means you'll have access to more training and skills opportunities, and job options later on. You need to show this pass to access things like cafes, restaurants, and council facilities. Some education providers may also need to see your My Vaccine Pass if you're entering their premises.
There are three ways you can get your My Vaccine Pass - online through My Covid Record, over the phone, and in person at a participating vaccination site. Find out how to do this on the Unite Against COVID-19 website:
