Counties Manukau Health is asking local schools to promote a special drive-through pop-up vaccination clinic for the members of our community, including our students, parents, staff and whānau.
The new Delta strain of the virus is highly infectious which means it can be passed on from person to person much more easily than ever before. The vaccine is the best way that we can keep our community safe from COVID 19 and reduces the risk of becoming very ill from the virus. (After being vaccinated the likelihood of ending up in hospital from COVID 19 is significantly reduced).
Everyone over the age of 12 is now eligible to have their FREE COVID 19 jab.
This special pop-up clinic is a great opportunity to protect our community and whānau from COVID 19, as well as answering the Prime Minister’s wero for as many of our community to be vaccinated by next Monday.
The event is being run over 2 days, Friday 17th & Saturday 18th September 9am – 4.30pm at the Browns Road Netball Centre so you can choose which day you wish to attend. On your chosen day, make sure you and your whanau have face coverings and if possible, bring your NHI number. If you don’t have your number, don’t let that stop you, please attend.
You do not need to book a place at this event – simply drive up on either day.
You will be able to stay within your bubble during your vaccination visit and all staff will be wearing full protective gear – you do not even need to get out of your car.
