From Checkpoint, 5:55 pm on 19 October 2021

Health officials are thinking smaller and more nimble as they try to reach the half million people who have not had a first dose of the vaccine.

First were the 'Shot Bro' buses, now vaccine campers are on the road.

More than 40 'vaxi vans' will be travelling over the motu in the next few weeks, aiming to reach isolated. rural areas.

One of the first stops was Onewhero in Waikato. Checkpoint reporter Louise Ternouth and camera operator Marika Khabazi went to check it out.
