Police puppy named: Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Police asked and you responded.

Members of the public have helped to christen Auckland Police's new puppy Etu.

Police appealed to the public last week for suggestions for a name starting with E for their latest canine recruit.

People were quick to come up with names.

Echo, Ernie, Eddie and Ezra were top contenders but officers were taken with the name Etu.

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.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comment used by Stuff.
