Poll: Do you think Covid-19 vaccinations should be compulsory for passengers on international flights?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca will start producing hundreds of millions of doses of its new coronavirus vaccine by Christmas after Oxford University researchers revealed a scientific breakthrough with the possibility to terminate the pandemic.

The vaccine was on average 70 per cent effective in foiling the disease, according to results from phase three trials.

It’s unknown yet whether New Zealand was in the line for this vaccine.

But New Zealand has already signed two agreements for other vaccines- the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine along with the vaccine from Janssen Pharmaceutica.

Qantas chief executive officer Alan Joyce on Monday night said vaccination would be mandatory for passengers.

“We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say that for international travellers, we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft,” he said.

Artist sculpts Sir John Logan Campbell : Cornwall Park, Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland artist Shona Lyon has commemorated Sir John Logan Campbell by creating this double life-sized bust.

It took Lyon four months to bring to life the detailed bronze sculpture which towers three metres high in Cornwall Park, Auckland.

Turning an old one dimensional photograph into the 360 degree sculpture proved the biggest challenge for Lyon.

The bust pays tribute to Campbell, who gifted 425 acres of One Tree Hill land to the people of New Zealand in 1901, renaming it Cornwall Park.

Special memories of growing up next to the park inspired Lyon's family to donate the sculpture.

Household water restrictions to last through summer

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland households face ongoing water use restrictions through the summer with the council not convinced the risks of the ongoing drought are gone.

Hoses connected to mains water could be used only if fitted with a handheld trigger, under a recommendation to be considered by councillors on Thursday.

Auckland’s supply dams are 72 per cent full, compared with a norm of 91 per cent, and the region is relying heavily on the Waikato River pipeline for 40 per cent of its needs.

Some Aucklanders have been coming up with innovative ways to conserve water.

What kind of water saving tips do you have?
