All vaccines available in New Zealand are licensed for use in this country.
Vaccines on the New Zealand National Immunisation Schedule are free when given as part of the Schedule. Other vaccines are not funded, but are available for purchase through your family doctor.
The 2014 National Immunisation Schedule came into effect on 1 July 2014 and more recently, on 1 July 2015, eligibility for funded vaccines for some special groups was extended.
We are in the process of updating the eligibility information for Boostrix®, Infanrix®-hexa, Infanrix®-IPV, Prevenar 13®, Pneumovax® 23 and Varilrix®.
