COVID Vaccine and People Living With HIV


Great news! As part of the Group 3 rollout, if you’re over 16 and living with HIV you are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccines that are being rolled out across the country.

Please check with your individual DHB here for how they’re vaccinating in your local area. Be aware they may contact you directly.

Your medication won’t change the effectiveness of the vaccine or interfere with it working, but if you’d like to learn more, check out these resources from Body Positive and CATIE.

Getting the flu vaccine as well this winter? It’s recommended you wait at least 2 weeks between getting the flu shot and either of your two COVID shots.
