A New Zealand’s “Super Saturday” of Covid vaccinations has proved a huge hit throughout the country.

In total 130,002 people received an injection. This represents 2.5% of the eligible population.

The total number easily beat the goal of 100,000 vaccine set by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

The Vaxathon was shown on TV from 12pm until 6pm. The show used well known musicians, politicans and sports stars to get the vaccination message across.

Air New Zealand, one of New Zealand’s biggest companies, opened one of its Boeing 787s to allow a lucky few to be vaccinated in business class, before eating in-flight snacks while waiting out their observation period.

Over the country vaccine clinics and pop up areas were open for extended hours during Saturday – many staying open until 8pm.

A big emphasis on the day was aimed to get more Maori and Pasifika peoples vaccinated. According to the Ministry of Health, about 5% of the Tongan community in New Zealand were vaccinated on Super Saturday.
