Darren Bevan recounted for Stuff his experience of getting the Covid-19 vaccine at Auckland’s newest drive-through vaccination clinic. A self-professed ‘trypanophobe’, Darren says, “There’s no denying that for those like myself with an irrational fear of needles, it’s a hard burden to overcome, and one that is extremely personal to everyone who suffers from it.” Nevertheless, he books his jab, sharing pictures and a blow-by-blow account of the event. “I’m even more pleased to tell anyone hesitant or overcome with uncertainty that if I can do it, you can do it too.”
