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.
What do you think of this initiative?
I am confuesed. I have spoken to others who like me have seen people getting Jabs but our percentages have not changed since the end of November. The numbers are why we are at red so with people getting jabs but numbers saying that there has not been a single injection in Northland?
