C'mon people, its our chance to put Hamilton well and truly on the map!
Lets get our whanau, friends and anyone else you know to get along and vaccinate.....Fairfield pharmacy are just the most wonderful people who are open and ready for you, if you are nervous and anxious, ask for Katy, she will allay all your fears, and answer any queries/concerns you have, please, please do it for yourself, do it for others, do it for New Zealand!
P.S., I have had cancer, so am immunodeficient (not that I remember most of the time, lol) and I got the jab, and had no reaction/s whatsoever, so dont wait, vaccinate today!!
Kia pai te ra!!

Hi Neighbour,

We’re all pretty well-versed in securing our homes when we head out the door to work, the shops, or a walk around the block. Locking the doors and setting the house alarm is second nature to many of us. But sometimes we aren’t quite so cautious when it comes to our online security, which protects many of our personal and business assets.

Although no one is immune - don't waste another minute worrying that your business might become a target. Instead, get clued up on a few easy steps you can take to keep yourself and your business safe.

Why not give your business a cyber security risk assessment or ensure you have secured your website - it’s simple and we can help.

Digital Boost is here to guide you through protecting yourself online - doing so may save you a lot of time and stress in the future. We've got simple-to-follow videos on everything from software updates to password authentication and phishing.

Safeguarding your business is time well spent, so arm yourself with the knowledge today!
