Covid-19: 'It just got real' in Te Tai Tokerau

From Morning Report, 6:12 am on 5 November 2021

Te Tai Tokerau still has to get 16,000 people vaccinated with their first Pfizer shot to hit the 90 percent goal - that's more than any other region in the country. One in five people are still unvaccinated in Northland, and there are now 10 active cases in the region. Associate Health Minister Peeni Henare visited clinics still in alert level 2 yesterday - sandwiched between the Auckland and Far North lockdowns. RNZ reporter Sam Olley was there.
