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?
It was quickly dubbed “the big snow” and was the heaviest snowfall in three decades.
“Christchurch teetered on the brink of disaster yesterday as the worst snowstorm in 30 years first paralysed the city, then caused widespread flooding,” The Press reported on August 29, 1992.
Do you remember the big snow?
