Auckland is at Alert Level 3, which means some changes to our hospitals and clinics. Find out moreAs always, we're here if you need us.

Super Saturday!

People will get a whole lot more than a vaccine dose this Saturday, with free ice cream, sausage sizzles, live music and spot prizes on offer at many vaccination centres and pop-up events being held across the city.

Super Saturday, the nationwide drive is aimed at capturing those yet to get their first dose, or those who are due for their second. In Auckland, 13 per cent of the eligible population is still yet to get their first dose.

Opening hours across the majority of the region’s 16 community vaccination centres and drive-throughs have been extended especially for the day. Among them is the CBD vaccination centre, which is being donned with rainbow decorations and there will be live music, a sausage sizzle and spot prizes. At Albany, there will be free coffee, a Mr Whippy truck visit, spot prizes and chocolate fish handed out to those who receive their dose.

Many of the mobile vaccination buses and vans will be out and about in the community. Details on times, locations and giveaways are listed below.

Celebrities, including sports stars and TV personalities, will be making appearances at some sites throughout the day.

More than 70 general practices and over a dozen pharmacies involved in the vaccine roll-out are also opening their doors, especially for the day. Among them is Mairangi Medical Centre, whose staff are dressing up to a “Save Our Summer” theme and Papatoetoe Family Doctors, whose staff are handing out free hot chickens alongside every vaccine dose.

And up to a dozen pop-up events are happening across the city, the details of which are outlined below.

Northern Region Health Coordination Centre (NRHCC) Programme Director Matt Hannant is urging anyone who is still to get their first dose to come along, as well as people who need their second dose. Second doses can be given 21 days after the first dose.

“It’s eight weeks to go until summer, so we’re encouraging everyone to get their vaccinations this weekend to help ensure you’re set to get out and about and enjoy the summer.

“Come on down, grab a sausage or a coffee, and bring along any whānau with you too.

“Getting vaccinated is still the best way to protect you and your whānau from COVID-19. With COVID-19 cases in the community, this weekend is a really important time to be getting answers to your questions and getting vaccinated.

“If you’re still feeling a bit unsure, you can have a chat to one of our friendly medical staff who will be on hand to answer questions at any of our community vaccination centres.”
