I’m really looking forward to seeing the whole country get involved in the Government’s Super Saturda(external link)(external link)initiative tomorrow.

The day is all about encouraging everyone in Aotearoa to get their first or second COVID-19 vaccination, if they haven’t already. This being a national day of action highlights just how urgent it is to get Aotearoa vaccinated. The more of us that are vaccinated, the more protection we will have.

For me, my ‘why’ for getting vaccinated was to keep my family safe. Kia Tika.  It is the right thing to do.

Watch our video to hear our people’s ‘why’ about getting vaccinated.

Ka pai and ngā mihi to those of you who are already vaccinated. Being vaccinated adds another layer of protection, along with our protocols and procedures, when you’re out doing what you do best – serving right into the heart of communities.

This weekend, keep encouraging the people around you who might still be hesitant, by sharing why you chose to get vaccinated. You can also offer to give a friend a lift to a local vaccination centre (if you are in an Alert Level 2 area) or offer to come ‘round and look after the whānau so they can go and get vaccinated.

On Super Saturday there will be walk-in and drive-through vaccination centres set up around the country on Saturday, as well as a Vaxathon streamed live on air. Find out more(external link)(external link) about what’s happening near you.

If you haven’t had yours yet, or it’s been three weeks since your first shot – make this Saturday the day to get out, and get it done.

That’s it from me for now.
