Shot Kawerau.

That’s the message Kawerau District Council is encouraging with the nationwide Super Saturday event.

“We’re committed to supporting the Kawerau Community to get as many people vaccinated as possible,” Kawerau Mayor Malcolm Campbell said.

A walk-in vaccination clinic will be running from 9am until 3pm at the Kawerau Town Hall.

Residents can enjoy entertainment outside and once they have had their vaccination redeem a food voucher thanks to the Bay of Plenty District Health Board.

Q97 and Radio 1XX will also be there shouting out to the region how many Kawerau people are taking their Super Saturday Shot for their whanau, the community and Aotearoa.

Plus, Mercury has come to the party in a big way.

Mercury has put $10,000 towards a total prize draw and everyone who gets vaccinated on Super Saturday is eligible to enter to win a prize.

Not only will people be protecting their whānau and their community – they will be helping to support the community. 

As Mercury has also pledged that the more people that get vaccinated the more money, up to a total of $35,000, will go to a number of community groups.

These groups are the Kawerau Health Shuttle, Order of St John, and Junior Sports in Kawerau including JAB Rugby, League, Soccer, Netball and Touch.

In addition, House of Hope Food Bank will receive $5,000.

So come on Kawerau – once a Top Town always a Top Town!

“We want to shout out to our district and get our vaccination rates right up there so we can all protect each other and get back to the things we love.”
