Border workers receive Covid vaccinations

New Zealand border workers have started receiving the Covid-19 vacination.

Lynette Faiva became the first border worker to get the vaccination.

Faiva works at the Jet Park Hotel and said she was “privileged and honoured” to be the first border worker to receive the Covid-19 vaccine in New Zealand.

She works in the hotel’s family team, organising support for families.

On Saturday 70 border workers were vaccinated for Covid-19 under strict infection prevention measures.

Faiva said the vaccination was no big deal.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said today’s vaccinations were a “milestone”.

He said today was the start of the “largest immunisation programme in our history”.

The immunisation of 12,000 people begins in Auckland, then Wellington on Monday and Christchurch on Wednesday, before the rest of the country.
