The University Of Waikato launches community Covid-19 vaccination clinic on Kīngitanga Day Thursday 16th September

Alastair from Riverlea

The University of Waikato will host a Covid-19 vaccination clinic and drive through vaccination service on Thursday, to mark Kīngitanga day.

The clinic will be available to all students, staff and the community but is focused on raising vaccination rates amongst Māori and Pacific students as a priority.

The vaccination clinic will be open from 10am - 3pm at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts and a drive through clinic will also be available at Gate 2B, Knighton Road.

The vaccination clinics are a drop-in service, so no set appointment is necessary, but people attending need to use reasonable precautions including wearing a mask and remaining appropriately distanced.

Brian from Cambridge

Now Russia has closed all shops including petrol stations apart from supermarkets and pharmacies.
USA are administering and Europe are starting to consider third doses or in the cases of J&J and Moderns, second shots, as boosters.
A recent study has shown 95% effective vs the coronavirus when compared to a vaccinated group that did not get the third shot.
