Good to get it done

Dunedin student Tom Johnson sits in the sun after receiving his second Covid-19 vaccination from the Te Kaika mobile clinic in the North East Valley, Dunedin, yesterday.

Mr Johnson, an ecology student at the University of Otago, had his first jab five weeks ago.

He said he got the vaccine because he believed it worked and it was good for the country to get it done. Te Kaika administrator Hector Nafatali said most people getting vaccinated were receiving their second shot.

People passing the bus were happy to stop what they were doing and spend about 20 minutes going through the vaccination process and observation period, he said.
