Hundreds arrived to get their first dose of the vaccine at the Waikato-Tainui mass vaccination event at Hopuhopu Sports Ground in October.

It included 7401 first doses and 26,466 second doses.

To date, 89 per cent of eligible New Zealanders aged 12 and over have had their first dose and 78 per cent were fully vaccinated.

In the Waikato District Health Board region, 313,820 people had first doses, that’s 88 per cent of the eligible population.

A total of 270,091 people had their second dose which means 76 per cent of the DHB region is now fully vaccinated.

Waikato DHB reminded people it had been three weeks since Super Saturday when 10,279 people turned up to get their vaccination and more than 4000 had their first doses.

It is now time for people to get their second shot at any of the vaccination clinics. People could find a walk-in vaccination clinic through Book My Vaccine or see where the mobile vaccination units were on the DHB’s website.

Some pharmacies are also open on Sunday and people can review those locations on the Health Point website.
