Let’s keep up the vaccination momentum

14 December 2021

By now you will have heard that the new vehicle offered by Development West Coast and Grey Ford is still “Up for Jabs”!  C’mon Coasters, we have until 24 December to get both doses to be in to win!

Being fully vaccinated reduces the severity of Covid-19 for anyone unfortunate enough to catch it, which reduces the pressure on health services and will help us move towards Green on the protection framework. Those that are unvaccinated are eight times more likely to be hospitalised than the vaccinated (according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

Upcoming drop-in mobile clinics in Westland are:

Wednesday, 15 December 12.00pm – 7.00pm Arahura Marae, Old Christchurch Road, Arahura
Friday, 17 December 10.00am – 4.00pm Hokitika – Pakiwaitara, 32 Weld Street, Hokitika

Between Christmas and New Year, vaccinations will only be available at Greymouth Te Nikau Hospital. You can drop in for the Pfizer vaccine, but you will need to book to get the AstraZeneca vaccine or a booster shot:

  • Wednesday 29 December, 10am – 4pm, Pfizer vaccine only
  • Thursday 30 December, 10am – 4pm and Friday 31 December, 10am – 2pm, Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
