Vaccinations are underway in the Bay of Plenty; up first were 28 workers at the Port of Tauranga.
The workers received the Pfizer/BioNTech Vaccine following the Te Moana a Toi vaccination programme.
Other Port companies such as Ngāti Ranginui, the main port testing and vaccination provider, and the Bay of Plenty District Health Board taskforce will organise vaccinations to get underway.
From Monday to Friday, vaccination teams will be onsite from 11 am-4 pm to vaccinate more border workers.
Bay of Plenty District Health Board COVID-19 Response Manager Helen De Vere acknowledged the first day going very well.
“It has been a very positive first day, with everyone involved appreciating how significant this effort is in keeping our community safe,” she said.
“I want to thank everyone for meeting this challenge head-on. Doing so helped ensure we were in a great position to start the vaccination programme at 11 am today.”
De Vere could not explain how proud she was of everyone involved, to be part of the team after an extensive logistical effort.
The efforts were made and it involved many people going above and beyond to get to vaccinating workers, adding an extra layer of protection to prevent COVID-19.
