Car loads of people queued up at Auckland’s first drive-thru vaccination site at a marae on Wednesday, RNZ reports. It’s an initiative many hope will boost low vaccination rates among Māori, with Papakura Marae chief executive Tony Kake saying vaccination sites at marae are vital because they are places Māori know and trust. Thirty-five staff are manning the site at Papakura Marae and expect to vaccinate 500 people a day.
