Their goal is 100 percent, but aged care and retirement village operator Radius Care is nevertheless celebrating vaccination numbers just over half of that.

Radius Care has 22 locations around New Zealand, employing more than 1700 staff and providing professional aged care for more than 1700 residents.

So far, just over 59 percent of residents and 52 percent of staff have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine. 87 percent of Radius Care residents and 69 percent of staff have also received their first doses.

Chief executive Stuart Bilbrough spoke to Corin Dann.
