The number of people who have had their Covid-19 vaccination continue to grow. Have you had your jab yet?
The Ministry of Health has released the latest statistics for vaccination rates at each district health board, broken down to the suburb, based on percentage of the eligible population.
Within MidCentral, the area with the highest percentage of fully vaccinated people is Linton Camp, with 83.5 per cent of people there having had both doses and 95 per cent having had their first dose. Hokowhitu Central, Poutoa and Ruahine have all had more than 60 per cent of people having had both doses.
At the opposite end of the scale, Shannon (32.6 per cent), Highbury East (33.8 per cent) and Palmerston North Central (35.5 per cent) have had the lowest percentage of people to get both doses.
Te Horo south of Ōtaki has one of the highest rate of Māori who are fully vaccinated with 49.1 per cent and Whakarongo has one of the higher rates of Pasifika people who are fully vaccinated with 81.8 per cent.
Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.
Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.
We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.
This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
We're 12 days away from Manawatū Art Expo! When the doors open at 9am on July 15, one of the artists whose work will be on show is Natalia Vidyakina: a Masterton based artist and author.
Natalia describes herself as an impressionist painter, but one whose work is also imbued with a style that is just her own. As an artist who admires nature’s ability to care for its inhabitants, Natalia says she draws inspiration from the natural world, but her goal is not to achieve realism or a naturalistic finish. Instead, she explains that she strives to “paint [her] emotions into each subject” so that her paintings provide a form of visual healing for the viewer.
You can learn more about Natalia by visiting her website: www.nataliavidyakina.com... and If you'd like to see more of Natalia’s work, join us at Manawatū Art Expo - Palmerston North Conference and Function Centre - 15-17 July.
It's only $5 to enter, and under 14s can come along for free!
To see more Artist a Day Posts, and to stay in the know about all things Manawatū Art Expo, make sure you 'Like' Feilding and District Art Society on Facebook.
