From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 7 October 2021

An Auckland vaccination centre will "pull an all-nighter" on Friday, in a bid to reach night-shift workers.

The Tamaki Vaccination Centre in Morrin Rd, St Johns, led by Ngati Whatua Orakei, will open at 8am on Friday and continue vaccinating until 6.30am on Saturday, with a DJ on deck, and a BBQ too.

The all-night event kicks off 'Super Saturday' - a nationwide push to get people vaccinated.

Northern Region Health Coordination Centre clinical director Dr Anthony Jordan spoke to Kim Hill.
