Canterbury DHB offers leftover Covid vaccine to companies near vaccination sites

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Good morning neighbours,

Workers not in high risk jobs can jump the queue to get a Covid-19 jab if they happen to work near a vaccination site.

The Canterbury District Health Board (DHB) has confirmed it offers the vaccine to local companies located close to vaccination clinics to prevent wastage.

CDHB Covid-19 response manager Ralph La Salle said on rare occasions, clinics had a small number of vaccine doses left at the end of the day that could not be used the next day.

“We believe [offering to local companies] is preferable to vaccine wastage.”

What do you think about this?

Log splitting!

Alan from Beckenham

Does anybody need logs or tree rounds split for their log burner? I have a contact with a transportable log splitter who lives out of town. He will come in if I can add to the amount that I have. Bring yours over on the day, make a small contribution to his fee and head home job done!
