Many kaupapa and events have been established to promote and encourage the multitudes to protect themselves and get vaccinated against Covid-19. Te Manaaroha Rollo of Ngāpuhi Iwi Social Services talks to us about Karawhiua Hokianga which is another vaccination kaupapa to be held at Te Puna o Kupenuku in Rāwene on the 12th of February and Manea Footprints of Kupe, Opononi on the 19th of February with guest speakers, arts and entertainment. Te Manaaroha raises the fact that there are still many who remain resistant and do not believe in the vaccine itself, which is why it is important to hold such events that will include trusted voices and trusted sources of information. Although the kaupapa will be held in Hokianga, Te Manaaroha says it is an open invitation to all neighbouring Far North districts.
