What do you think of Northland rugby clubs and iwi health providers teaming up to encourage vaccines?
An initiative between Northland's rugby community and iwi health providers is aiming to give the region’s vaccination rates a kick.
The programme, dubbed Take 2 for The Team, will see local sport clubs encourage players, whānau and supporters to get vaccinated, with clubs getting $10 each time someone gets a jab.
The aim is to make Northland the first province at least 90 per cent fully vaccinated by Christmas, with a focus on Māori and Pasifika communities, enabling sports competitions to run uninterrupted in future.

Our staff are taking the Aotearoa Bike Challenge this February, using more bike rides to get to work and around. You and your colleagues could compete against us - why not? 🚲🚲
You know what's better than being stuck in boring car traffic? Riding a bike! Even if you're not fast it helps you to get around, get exercise, spot interesting things in the neighbourhood, and save lots of money on fuel and parking. So go on, give it a go!
The Aotearoa Bike Challenge is a competition between organisations to commute by bike during February. But it's so much fun that most people forget about the competition and just enjoy the fun of getting about by bike. Sign up for free as an individual or register your workplace: www.lovetoride.net...
