Importance of vaccination against COVID-19

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your whānau and friends from the effects of the COVID-19 virus. Getting a booster shot maintains your body's immune response against all strains of the COVID-19 virus, including the highly transmissible Omicron and Delta strains.
