COVID-19 Vaccine Advice
12 October 2021
CFNZ strongly encourages everyone who has not already done so to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible to protect themselves, their families, their friends and colleagues, and the CF community.
Earlier this year, we asked our Clinical Advice Panel (CAP) about the COVID-19 vaccinations.
The panel advised that all people with CF (in the eligible age group) would be offered an appointment, and strongly recommended you have the vaccination when offered. Everyone can now book in for the vaccination, or turn up at a centre offering walk-ins. Book your vaccine here >
There is only vaccine product being offered in New Zealand, the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and requires two doses. The second dose is given at least three weeks later. It’s very important you get your second dose. You will have the best protection once you have both doses.
