To find out if you, or your tamariki, have had all their immunisations, or if there are some to catch up on, you can:
- check your Well Child Tamariki Ora My Health Book (previously called Plunket Book), or
- phone and talk to your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.
Lots of adults do not have their Plunket Books anymore and often individual vaccinations were not recorded. So to check whether you’ve been vaccinated, contact your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.
If you’re not able to confirm an immunisation was given, your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider may advise you to play it safe and get immunised anyway. It’s better to be vaccinated and protected.
If your tamariki missed their school vaccination
If your child has missed a school vaccination, contact your school to see if there’s a catch-up vaccination day planned. If there isn’t one planned, don’t worry, they can be vaccinated by your doctor, nurse, or healthcare provider.
