More than 50,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses were delivered since the site opened last year.

About 15,000 Covid-19 PCR tests and 3000 paediatric injections were conducted this year and about 500 flu jabs in the past month.

Te Kaika’s Oamaru drive-through site also closed yesterday and the Queenstown site last Thursday.
