New Zealand has transitioned to the COVID-19 Protection Framework. All parts of the country are now at Red or Orange. A map is available on the Unite Against Covid-19 website. New Zealand is able to make this transition because our vaccination rates are on track to be some of the highest in the world. At Red and Orange under the Framework, many places will require people to show a My Vaccine Pass to enter. This includes hospitality venues, close-proximity businesses (like hairdressers) and gyms. My Vaccine Pass can also be used at events, retail businesses, gatherings, and public facilities. People who don’t yet have their My Vaccine Pass should sign up to My COVID Record at mycovidrecord.health.nz to download their pass. It can also be requested by calling 0800 222 478. Pharmacies and some vaccination centres are also able to assist people in getting access to their My Vaccine Pass. A list of participating pharmacies is available on the Healthpoint website.
