They have had their first shot and are challenging the region to get out in front of the rest of the country, to drive vaccine rates up to 90 percent and keep each other safe as we head into summer.  

“Let’s give it a shot to beat the rest of New Zealand to maximum vaccine rates,” says Chair Jenny Hughey. 

The Super Saturday nationwide vaccination day of action on 16 October will see clinics open for longer, with a range of events to help encourage people to get vaccinated.

“It can be done Canterbury.  There are now drive-throughs, walk-ins and appointments available right across the region.  Public transport is free to your appointment

“There are no excuses!”

Canterbury’s Mayors and Chair Hughey have thrown their support behind Super Saturday.

“We want our whānau and communities to be in a position to be able to make the most of the upcoming summer season, and what our magnificent Canterbury region, and the rest of New Zealand has on offer to enjoy,” says the Chair of the Mayoral Forum Selwyn District, Mayor Sam Broughton.
