“We are asking everyone in Aotearoa to either get vaccinated or support someone to get vaccinated as part of Super Saturday – our national day of action for vaccination, tomorrow, October 16, 2021.

“There will be more than 120 extra vaccination sites open, with many sites operating with extended hours and events and prizes on offer around the regions.

“The Covid Vaccination Healthline (0800 28 29 26) will also have extra staff available to answer any vaccine-related questions.

“A live Vaxathon will run from midday to 8pm. The event will celebrate the regions with the biggest change in vaccination numbers and will be supported by well-known Kiwis.”
