Vaccine clinics soon

Covid-19 vaccination clinics are set to open in Queenstown and Fiordland in coming weeks, the first in the South outside Dunedin and Invercargill.

The Southern District Health Board said yesterday clinics would begin in Queenstown on April 10.

They would be open to current border workers and those who would become part of the border workforce should a transtasman bubble come into effect, their household contacts and frontline health workers.

The Queenstown clinics would run on April 10 and 11 from 9.30am to 4pm, then from April 12 to 15 from 5.30pm to 8pm.

The Fiordland clinic would run in Te Anau from April 13 to 16, with times to be confirmed.

Further clinics for frontline health workers in southern rural areas would be progressively opened from mid-April.

Bookings were essential.
