Door to door Covid-19 vaccinations start in Far North

From Checkpoint, 5:38 pm on 3 September 2021

Vaccinators are going from whare to whare with Pfizer shots in the Far North to make sure nobody misses out.

The region's population has been identified as one of the most vulnerable to Covid-19 complications with large proportions of elderly people and Māori, who are at high risk of hospitalisation from the virus.

Today a roving mobile vaccine clinic began visiting homes and a small business, to see people who have otherwise found it difficult to get themselves to a rollout site.
