Get vaxxed!


We were visiting one of our local supermarkets last week, not one we usually go to but another one to see the difference in prices and it was encouraging to see a pop up covid vaccination station. I thought we only had one that is normally located in a different street so it was encouraging to see this 2nd one.

There is a big vaccination drive in my region this weekend, apparently a bunch of mobile buses will be travelling around to the more isolated communities because the rate up here is quite low. Last week or so we had 2 women travel up here with fake essential worker papers, it turned out that they were both positive for covid and after going into hiding they have been found but one is still unco-operative. Bit by bit the places where they have been are becoming known and one place in my town has now been named so people are being encouraged to get tested. The numbers in Auckland have been going up, down, up, down so who knows how far it will go but it's interesting that those who have tested positive are not vaccinated. It's all a real worry but it is what it is at the end of the day.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

...we got our season flu shot yesterday. I will never understand the resistance to the Covid-19 vaccination.

It's sad that there are selfish people around who just don't care about others.

Hopefully the weekend push will get the numbers up.

I have been double vaxxed.

I´m with Tom, chaos will break loose when the normal flu-shots set in as well! Winter on the way here...

There are a lot a wacky people out there. Hope they take advantage of the opportunity to get vaccinated!

It looks like every little community is coming together to help the big vaccination push this weekend. Hope it's a success as I think a higher vax rate is the only way I'm going to get to see my son again.

Here in my area of the USA it hard to get people vaccinated. Some are still insisting that are tracking chips in the vaccine. Really, who would want to track all these people? I've personally known two very health people in their thirties who have recently died of Covid.

Greetings and Salutations! Great that people showed up any ways because of the downpour. I am so sorry that two women tried to spread Covid-19. We have people here who will not get the vaccine. Others have even had the booster shot. Sounds like a plan to become mobile with vaccine for out of the way places.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
