Immunity For Our Community in Moerewa

Oct. 16, 2021, 8:44 p.m.

The Northland District Health Board had set a goal to deliver 3900 vaccinations on Super Saturday, a national day of collective action to boost rates across the motu. The target was reached by mid afternoon and a final tally of 4974 exceeding everyone's expecatations.

Rugby for Life and Ngāti Hine Health Trust came together in Moerewa with a fun, interactive and informative day for local whānau. Many that turned out were receiving their first dose, citing trust, community responsibility and a desire to return to normality as their key motivations.

Local MP, Willow-Jean Prime, who grew up in Moerewa said it was important for the local community to know they were well supported and surrounded by people they knew and could trust.
