New free taxi service to COVID-19 vax centres, in-home vaccinations available

From Friday, 1 October, NRHCC is offering a free taxi service to and from a COVID-19 vaccination centre or drive-through for people having their first dose who don’t drive or don’t have access to other forms of transport.

People can register by calling the COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 28 29 26 or emailing

The new service is run in partnership with Auckland’s Co-op (Blue Bubble) Taxis. 

We are hoping to extend this service to GP and pharmacy providers once we have a better understanding of demand. 

And if people are unable to leave their home and need either their first or second COVID-19 vaccination they should call 0800 28 29 26 or email to register their details.

NRHCC will then be in contact to organise an in-home vaccination.

Fanau Ola Nurse Case Manager, Peisi Ah Chong is encouraging all families to get vaccinated.

“The vaccine is our best shot at a virus that is literally taking the world by storm.

 “It not only protects us but those vulnerable people who can’t get the vaccine.

“I know it can be a little scary, but rest assured there are a lot of us that have already been vaccinated and we’re good.

“There’s a lot of credible information out there like on the Ministry of Health website and the Unite Against Covid website.”
