The last year has seen our many communities and health services mobilise in response to the impact of Covid-19, the infectious illness caused by a new strain of Coronavirus. Huhana Lyndon talks to us about some of the work and support provided by Kia Ora Ngāti Wai during last year and during the summer holiday period. With the pop up vaccination centers Huhana says that they have been successful in delivering over 700 vaccinations which is an awesome achievement. Huhana also mentioned a positive case in Whangaruru, which was a first for the community and the whānau were forced to isolate at home, unable to experience the beautiful beaches and summer weather in Te Tai Tokerau like most of us, but instead remain locked down at home mainly indoors.
