North Shore's first community Covid-19 vaccination clinic opens

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Kia ora koutou. The North Shore's first Covid-19 vaccination clinic is open for business.

Located in the former Warehouse site at the Highbury Shopping Centre, the clinic will have capacity to vaccinate up to 1000 people per day once fully up-to-speed.

The clinic was opened by DHB iwi partner Ngāti Whātua on Monday morning.

Waitematā DHB CEO Dr Dale Bramley said the high-profile location would be easily accessible for the public to get their vaccinations.

It is expected the clinic will service a "large and diverse" population, including the a "rapidly growing Asian community" which made up 28 per cent of the district's 650 thousand-strong population.

First in line to receive their vaccinations at the clinic are border workers and their household contacts, MIQ staff and health workers, followed by people with underlying health conditions and older Māori and Pacific people.
