Public Health Measures
The Public Health Measures under the COVID-19 Safe Framework outline how the Cook Islands will operate. It is important that you are actively aware of these Public Health Measures to keep yourself and others safe.
Community Health Clinics
The Health Clinics act as your first point of contact for any medical needs. Ensure that you keep the contact details of your nearest Health Clinic handy and be sure to contact them and seek advice from a Te Marae Ora representative if you are feeling unwell.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free, effective and voluntary for those aged 12 years and over in the Cook Islands. Getting vaccinated is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your family and our islands from the effects of the virus.
