Maori-run vaccination centres moving the dial

The Whānau Ora Community Clinic in Wiri was open until almost 11pm last night testing for COVID-19, and it’s open again today.

Chief executive George Ngatai says it’s also reopening its vaccination site in Takanini on Saturday, once it has beefed up staffing so it can deliver more than 700 shots a day.

He says a strong Māori presence is the best way to get Māori testing and vaccination numbers up.
