Covid-19: Where to get tested and vaccinated in Auckland during Labour Weekend

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.

Just like Grandma used to make, these puddings are packed full of fruity goodness and ready to be served at Christmas or put away for a midwinter treat.

Almost 200 of these flew out the door recently at the Rotary Christmas Market and now there are just 14 left to sell. First in, first-served, so hurry now and place an order.

Please email Roy roy@dykes.co.nz to secure your puds!
