Covid-19: Where to get tested and vaccinated in Auckland during Labour Weekend

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.

Dishonest behavior in the order system of Mosquitox

Alex from Greenhithe

When I viewed "Market" on Neighbourly this afternoon, I saw "New Way To Keep Mosquitos Away". I opened this advertisement, and it sounds good. So I booked one.

However, the price shown on their website is NZD 66.99 each, while they charged me NZD 81.94 after I provided my banking information!

If they want to charge customers the freight cost seperately, they should let us know before we pay.

I am pretty unhappy with their dishonest behaviour in business.
I have sent them an e-mail and waiting to see what they will say.

Tip: For any online order, we should not proceed if the amount is not shown before we pay.
