A wide range of COVID-19 vaccination events will be held across the Hutt Valley, Wellington, Porirua, and Kapiti regions this coming Saturday 16 October.

“Vaccination is the safest and most effective defence against COVID-19, and the more people who are vaccinated the safer our communities will be,” said Hutt Valley DHB and Capital & Coast DHB chief executive Fionnagh Dougan.

“To that end we are working with our Maori, Pacific, PHO, and other partners to host a range of events across our rohe to make it easy – and fun – for everyone and their whanau to get vaccinated in time to enjoy the coming summer.”

  • Takapuwahia Marae Porirua vaccination festival – free hangi and a rongoa approach
