COVID-19 remains a serious threat to our health and wellbeing. While we’ve changed our lives and tikanga to protect ourselves from COVID-19, there is still more we can do to keep ourselves safe.
This year, everyone aged 12 and over will get the chance to get a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is especially important to safeguard our kuia and kaumātua, hapū Māmā and others who are more likely to get seriously ill if they catch COVID-19. It will also help protect our tamariki and those who cannot yet be vaccinated against the virus.
Seek out trusted sources of information and have a kōrero with your whānau, hapū, iwi and community about how best to protect yourselves against COVID-19. Be a doer! Karawhiua.
