Manukau chemist calls for vaccine walk-ins

From Nights, 8:30 pm on 14 September 2021

From Thursday, vaccination buses will head out on Auckland streets as mobile clinics.  The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, says six buses will initially be deployed in areas with low coverage, and it's hoped to expand the fleet to 12 in the next few weeks.  Ms Ardern has urged people to go online if your booking isn't til October - and find a sooner date, especially if you're in Auckland. If you're in Manukau, though, there's a vaccine centre operating at the Bargain Chemist. Josh Levy is a team leader there and he's working hard to get more people to come in for their vaccinations.
