COVID-19: Updates & Info

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 Delta variant in New Zealand, we’ve changed the way we’re operating here at Local Doctors to ensure the safety of you and your whānau. Throughout the Lockdown period, we’ll use this page to keep you updated on the status of our clinics, as well as any important changes you need to know.
Please visit the COVID-19 website for general information.

Red Clinic & Green Clinic System

We are conscious that the COVID-19 Delta variant that is currently in New Zealand, can spread more easily than the original COVID-19 virus. To help our patients and staff reduce the spread of the Delta variant, White Cross and Local Doctors are setting up several clinics as either dedicated RED or GREEN clinics for the moment.

Green Clinics

Dedicated GREEN clinics are UNABLE TO TREAT patients that have respiratory symptoms such as a cough, cold, a runny nose, sore throats, and fever.

Red Clinics

Dedicated RED clinics are ONLY ABLE to treat patients with respiratory symptoms.

Mixed-Use Clinics

Our MIXED-USE clinics are set up with separate red and green areas and are able to treat all patients.

If you’re experiencing COVID-19 respiratory symptoms please head to one of our RED clinics. If you’re NOT experiencing any symptoms, please head to one of our GREEN clinics.

If the clinic you usually visit or are enrolled at is closed or not suitable, please head to any other suitable clinic in our network – you’ll be welcomed and we already have your notes on file.

Your questions, answered.

FAQs

We've heard from our communities that there are a lot of unanswered questions around the COVID-19 Vaccination. We want to make sure you feel safe and certain about your decision to get vaccinated, so we've answered as many as possible below - and we'll keep updating as we know more.

  • Yes! We encourage you to make sure you’re getting the healthcare you need. It’s completely safe, legal and okay to bring yourself and your whānau/aiga to the clinic.

  • That’s no problem, head to the nearest open green or red clinic (depending on your symptoms) that’s convenient to you. You can pick any – if you’re enrolled with us we’ll already have your notes on file.

  • Yes, no problem. Book an appointment with our Online Doctors at Bettr.co.nz. If you’re an enrolled patient, it’s only $10 to see the doctor.

  • You’re welcome to visit any green clinic within our network, no need to call ahead – just show up. If you’re enrolled with us we’ll already have your notes on file.

  • You’re welcome to visit any red clinic within our network, no need to call ahead – just show up. If you’re enrolled with us we’ll already have your notes on file.

  • Head to the nearest White Cross urgent Care Centre (listed above). We’re still open and helping with urgent care needs.

  • Your safety is our #1 concern. We’ve done a lot of things over lockdown including screening everyone who visits our clinics for symptoms and testing our staff regularly, wearing full PPE where appropriate and N95 masks and rearranging the waiting areas for safe social distancing.

    You’re safe to come in – we have masks on hand if you don’t have your own.

  • No you don’t have to pay. If you come in for COVID symptoms, your consultation is FREE if you take a COVID test.

  • Vaccines work by teaching the body’s immune system to respond quickly to infection without being exposed to the infection itself.

    This means that the vaccine doesn’t actually use the virus cells at all.

    Instead, the vaccine contains a messenger RNA code (messenger ribonucleic acid: a single-stranded molecule that carries genetic code) that essentially teaches your body to recognise the virus, and helps your body to be ready to respond straight away if you’re infected with COVID-19.

    The vaccination will not give you COVID-19 and it will not affect your DNA or genes. It does not contain any live virus, or dead or deactivated virus.

    More information on the Pfizer vaccine, here.

  • Like all medicines, the vaccine may cause side effects in some people. Usually, these are mild and only last for a few days. They won’t stop you from having the second dose or going about your day as usual.

    The most common reactions are:

    • pain at the injection site
    • a headache
    • feeling tired or fatigued
    • muscle aches
    • feeling generally unwell
    • chills
    • fever
    • joint pain
    • nausea

    Some side effects may temporarily affect your ability to drive or use machinery. Serious reactions are very rare.

  • Global scientists and governments have been working together and sharing data to improve the speed of vaccine development and clinical trials. There has never been this level of collaboration globally, which has meant we’ve been able to fast-track the process.

    We’re also continuing to receive data from large clinical trials thanks to innovative technology, which allows us to monitor the safety of vaccines. This has meant that safety approvals that used to take a long time have happened faster.

    You can read more on the Pfizer vaccine here.

    • A two-week gap is recommended between any non-live vaccine, including influenza vaccine, and the COVID-19 vaccine
    • A four-week gap is recommended for MMR or any other live vaccines

  • You will need two doses in total to get the best protection against COVID-19. You will be asked to get your second dose of the vaccine at least 3 weeks.

  • The vaccination is given as an injection into the muscle of your upper arm. You’ll need two doses in total.

  • Yes! The vaccine is free for anyone in New Zealand, regardless of your immigration or citizenship status.
