90% of New Zealand’s Pacific community has now had at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, reports The Spinoff. Aupito William Sio, minister for Pacific peoples, said reaching the milestone reflected the work of community leaders in supporting the vaccination drive. “We know that giving Pacific people and Pacific providers a say to lead the delivery of vaccination services is what works for our communities. That innovative approach by Pacific providers using our Pacific language­ and cultural intelligence has been embraced by everyone.”
