Taranaki COVID-19 hub and immunisation clinics to close

27 June 2024

The Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora Taranaki COVID-19 Hub is closing.  

The COVID-19 Hub at Taranaki Base Hospital will finish providing ‘COVID-19 care in the community’ and testing services on 30 June 2024.

Two hospital-led immunisation services in New Plymouth will also stop on 30 June including the Child and Adolescent Community Centre (CACC) at Taranaki Base Hospital and the Family Health and Midwife Clinic (The Greenhouse) on Devon Street West. Alongside the COVID-19 Hub, these clinics were providing both COVID-19 and other funded vaccinations.

Acting Group Director of Operations for Health NZ Taranaki, Katy Sheffield, says it was a pleasure to work alongside other Hauora providers to keep our community safe through COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

“We still want the community to keep up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines, boosters and other important immunisations.

“There are lots of vaccination opportunities across our rohe so please get in touch with your Iwi provider, GP and local pharmacies,” says Sheffield.

GP practices and community pharmacies will continue to offer antivirals prescribing and COVID-19 testing.
