COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone in the Cook Islands

The COVID-19 vaccine will be free and voluntary for eligible residents in the Cook Islands aged 16 and over, regardless of their visa or citizenship status. Any information collected will not be used for immigration purposes. We’ll have enough of the Pfizer vaccine for everyone to get the 2 doses they need to be protected. People under the age of 16 are not included for now, because the vaccines have not been tested on this age group yet.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is an important step you can take to protect yourself, your family and our islands from the effects of the virus. It’s one way we can fight the COVID-19 pandemic and protect our welfare and wellbeing. By having the vaccine you’ll be playing your part to protect us all.

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout began on 18th May 2021

With the support of the New Zealand Government, we have managed to secure sufficient Pfizer vaccines to provide full coverage for all our eligible population.
