From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 21 September 2021

Age Concern says it's been crying out for the past six weeks for the sort of proactive approach now being taken to vaccinating those over 65 in Auckland.

The Prime Minister yesterday revealed there were 23,000 unvaccinated elderly in Auckland.

She asked that they all remain at home due to the higher risk of transmission under level 3 and announced they would all receive a phone call encouraging them to get a vaccine.
