This website is a collaboration of the health teams in Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand, responding to COVID-19 in the Greater Wellington region.
To respond effectively to COVID-19, our teams work closely with a wide range of partners, including Primary Health Organisations, Māori, Pacific and disability providers, GPs and the local pharmacy network. Together we are working to provide vaccination and testing services across the region and to ensure that people are provided with the health and welfare support they require to safely isolate in the community – preserving their health and protecting their communities.
