Vaccination uptake in our area

Oliver Neighbourly Lead from One Tree Point

I'm stoked to see that my sleepy little hometown One Tree Point (aka Marsden Bay) is currently leading the vaccination uptake in Northland, with 89.9% first shots and 81.4% second shots. I hope we can eventually get it to 95% or higher for full vaccinations, given that we usually see a huge influx of visitors over the holidays.
Quite a few Whangārei suburbs make the top 20 at the moment. See image below for a screenshot of Ministry of Health data, as of 3-Nov 2021. The percentages are hiding in the two rightmost columns, as the number of doses per 1,000 people.
