“Let’s go, Hauraki. Let’s get that vaccination rate up!” Mayor Toby Adams wants people in Hauraki district to make the most of Super Saturday this weekend and get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Super Saturday is a national day of action on October 16 to encourage people to get vaccinated. Across New Zealand, pop-up centres will be opening so people can get their first or second jab. Everyone aged 12 and over is eligible, and it’s free.
Sights on highest vaccination rate in the country
Mayor Toby Adams says if we want life to get back to normal, we need a high vaccination rate in our district.
“At the moment, figures show that 69.6% of our population has had one dose, and 44.7% have had their second. That’s pretty good, but I’d like to see Hauraki have the highest rates in the country. That will protect our communities so people can get back to normal and our local businesses can operate throughout the usually busy summer months. So, take advantage of Super Saturday."
"Take the family along to one of the pop-up centres, and encourage your friends, whānau, workmates and neighbours to show up and get vaccinated.”
Drive-thru and walk-in vaccination locations
Not that we're competitive, but we'd love to see Hauraki district top the league table for turnout on Super Saturday! There's heaps of locations around the Hauraki and Coromandel district so you're sure to find a convenient location near you. Remember:
- You can get your second vaccination if your first one was more than 3 weeks ago
- Wear your mask
- Cancel any pre-booked appointment. That will free up space for people who can't make it on Super Saturday
