Kai, icecream and free rugby tickets part of push to get Kiwis vaccinated on Super Saturday

The Team Reporter from The Press

Super Saturday, a nationwide day of action to drive-up the nation’s vaccination rates, is happening this weekend.

In Canterbury, where there is a target to get 90 per cent of people vaccinated by Labour Day, there is a host of events taking place, offering people a chance to get their jab. Anyone over 12 can be vaccinated and people do not need to make an appointment.

A drive-through clinic will be open at Christchurch Arena from 9am to 7.30pm and the first 300 people will receive tickets to Canterbury RFUs game against top of the table Hawke’s Bay. There will also be “kai, music and goodies” on offer.

People who get vaccinated will get a free sausage sizzle and prizes will be up for grabs. The team from Rollickin Gelato will also be handing out free gelato to those who receive the vaccine.

Anyone with any concerns or questions about the Covid-19 vaccination will be able to “ask an expert”, with members of Canterbury DHB’s education team on hand to answer questions.

At Etu Pasifika Vaccination Centre, in Montreal St, there will be a “warm Pacific welcome” with kai and the chance to get more information about the vaccine.

Fish and chip restaurant Fush will be providing food at Ngā Hau E Whā National Marae Vaccination Clinic, in Pages Rd, to to anyone who receives a vaccination and Mr Whippy will be offering free icecream.

Metro buses in and around greater Christchurch and the ferry across Lyttelton Harbour will be free for anyone going to or from a vaccination clinic.

People can also visit their local vaccination clinic, with about 50 drop-in services available 50 across the region.
