The Ministry through our local PHO are driving the process but we will be kept informed by them.

Patients under 65 years who have a diagnosis of the following chronic conditions are also eligible to book their vaccine: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), chronic kidney or renal disease, diabetes, coronary heart conditions, stroke, high blood pressure and cancer (excluding basal and squamous skin cancers if not invasive).
