Super Saturday

Super Saturday: Don't wait, vaccinate!

It’s never been more urgent - Summer is just eight weeks away, get your first vaccine now to get two doses before Summer starts to be able to take advantage of everything that a Kiwi summer offers.

If you have only had your first dose – your job isn’t done, you still need to get your second dose as soon as possible, as long as both doses are given three weeks apart.

The more of us are fully vaccinated, the more protection we will have against COVID-19, and the more freedom this gives us. That is why we are asking you to support Super Saturday our national day of action on Saturday 16 October.

In an effort to reach over 90% of our population to be vaccinated we have capacity to deliver over 2,000 vaccinations in South Canterbury on Super Saturday.

At Aorangi Park, we will have free BBQ food all day, coffee cart and biscuits in the morning, and donuts and slushies in the afternoon.

Plus, if you're aged between 12-18 you can win 5 x JBL speakers. If you're 18+ you'll go in the draw to win 10 x 2 day passes to Rhythm and Alps if you get your first dose this Saturday, or bring a mate to be vaccinated and show your vaccination card.  Click here to view the terms and conditions.
