The Auckland City Mission hopes the homeless will be given priority in the queue for the Covid-19 vaccine. The mission has had to drastically change the way it operates as a result of Auckland's level 3 lockdown, with homeless people unable to congregate at its central Auckland premesis like they do normally. There's also been a big surge in the number of working people needing the mission's help during the lockdown. Our producer Matthew Theunissen spoke with city missioner Chris Farrelly.
