Super Saturday  

This Saturday, 16th October 2021 is Super Saturday! We encourage and support vaccination of all eligible New Zealanders against COVID-19. Whether this Saturday is your first or second dose, it all counts towards reaching our 90% goal.
Summer is around the corner and getting vaccinated is the best way to secure a classic Kiwi summer. 

Get Involved 

Here are ways you can get involved in Super Saturday: 

Get vaccinated!

Either get your first dose, or if it has been over 3 weeks since your first dose, get your second dose now. Vaccination centres can be found here

If you have received both doses, offer to go with your friend to a vaccination centre and shout them a coffee afterwards. 

Spread the word about Super Saturday 

Think about what you can do as an individual or as a workplace. This could be giving your team time off work to have their vaccination.

Use the COVID-19 downloadable resources and share them with your staff and customers. These can be accessed here.

Talk to people about why you got the vaccine

It helps others who have concerns. Drop round or pick up the phone and have a chat about why you got vaccinated and how it was for you.

Share reliable information

Some people still need information they can trust if they are not sure how to book or are worried about vaccination.
