3 March First COVID-19 vaccination in Taranaki
Our public health nurses were the first to get a COVID-19 vaccination this week in preparation for the Vaccination Programme roll out starting in Taranaki. It’s important our nurses are protected before they start vaccinating. Here’s our clinical nurse coordinator Rachel Court taking one for the team!
Taranaki border workers will be some of the first people to get the free COVID-19 vaccine, with around 60 workers booked in for vaccination appointments already.
