Ashburton District Mayor Neil Brown and other members of the Canterbury Mayoral Forum are encouraging Cantabrians who need their second Covid-19 vaccination to get it done.

Forum chair Mayor Sam Broughton said there were are a lot of Cantabrians due to have their second vaccination now or very shortly.

“With Covid-19 beginning to march its way southward, and the traffic light system on the horizon, we strongly encourage people to get that second jab to ensure we can all have a safe and enjoyable summer.”

At last week’s final Mayoral Forum for the year, mayors discussed the fact that every member of the forum, from Waitaki in the south to Kaikoura in the north, has had both vaccinations.

“I am proud to lead a group that understands the importance of protecting our community and particularly our tamariki, who are unable to be vaccinated,” Mayor Broughton said.

There are plenty of opportunities for people to get their vaccinations, at either walk-in clinics across the region, by booking an appointment through www.bookmyvaccine.govt.nz or calling 0800 28 29 26.
