Be a part of the Super Saturday Vaxathon
We're proud to be supporting this weekend's Super Saturday event to vaccinate as many people as possible against Covid-19. We're encouraging you and all our veterans, and their whānau and friends who haven't yet to get their Covid-19 vaccine to do so this Saturday.
Super Saturday Vaxathon
New Zealand’s first-ever Vaxathon will take place this Super Saturday, encouraging New Zealanders to get vaccinated. It will be streamed live on Three, Māori Television, and Hahana, from midday to 8pm. Celebrities and health professionals will all be there live, and they will cross to COVID-19 vaccination sites to capture the atmosphere and experiences of those receiving their first or second vaccine. Watch New Zealand take a big step to reaching that 90% vaccination goal and to fewer restrictions.
Why get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Research shows that if you have the vaccine, you are less likely to be admitted to hospital if you become infected with Covid-19. Even if you back yourself to recover from Covid-19 the vaccine will help stop you from spreading it. It's good for you, your whānau and the community.
Visit the Covid website to find the nearest vaccine centre to you, where you can either book an appointment or find a walk-in centre to receive your FREE vaccine.
Veterans and the COVID-19 vaccine
Recently our Clinical Adviser, Dr Mike O’Reilly sat down to talk to our veteran whānau about the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine. He explains how you can serve your country once more, but in a different way.
