The Government has said it wants Auckland to hit the 90% milestone by the time it makes its alert level decision on October 4, which gives the city less than two weeks to reach that goal, NZ Herald reports. The city is already at 80% but those on the ground say the next 10% will be more challenging and will take creative thinking. Roughly 10,000 Aucklanders a day would need to get their first dose. Immunisation Advisory Centre director Nikki Turner said the target was a tall order but the fact the city had reached 80% in the past few weeks showed people were motivated.
