Pop-up Community Clinics across the Southern District

Southern councils and health providers are joining forces to make it easier for rural communities to get vaccinated.

The Farmgate tour hits the road on Monday 1 November, with Southland District Mayor Gary Tong visiting western and northern Southland and Gore District Mayor Tracy Hicks covering eastern and southern Southland.

The two mayors will be out towing caravans with staff from Southern Health and will stop in several small communities to allow people in more isolated areas to come and get vaccinated against COVID-19.

They and their support team will spend the week throughout Southland and then return at the end of the month for people to get their second vaccination. Walk-ins are encouraged and the vaccine is free of charge.
