Music, free kai and vaccines to keep you safe this winter!

With the second wave of Omicron spreading across Aotearoa New Zealand, getting vaccinated against Covid-19 is the best thing you can do to protect you, your mates and your whānau.

The Ministry of Health also advises of a higher risk of measles this winter. Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) can all be very serious illnesses, but measles is particularly dangerous. The MMR vaccination helps protect you.

So if it’s time for your first or second (check eligibility here) Covid-19 booster, or your MMR vaccine, drop into our vaccination clinic on campus next week! The clinic will also offer first and second Covid-19 vaccine shots if you haven’t had these yet.

When: Tuesday 26 July, 10am – 4pm & Wednesday 27 July, 9am – 1pm
Where: Haere-roa

You don’t need to make an appointment, you can just pop in anytime that suits you. Both, the Covid-19 and MMR vaccine are free for all students, including international students. Our awesome volunteers will be there to welcome you into Haere-roa, answer any questions you have and make sure you’re well looked after. There’ll be music, free kai, and everyone is welcome, so bring along your friends, family and flatmates too!

Please make sure you wear a face mask, maintain physical distancing at all times, and stay home if you’re sick.

If we all get vaccinated and boosted, we will help keep ourselves and our community safe.

You can find out more about Covid-19 vaccines here and more about the MMR vaccine here.

This clinic is held in partnership with Te Whatu Ora Waitaha | Health New Zealand Canterbury and the University of Canterbury (UC).
