The sausages and the Covid jabs flew out the door at the Milford Tennis Club in Auckland on the day of their vaccination event.
A club member who is a doctor sent out an email recommending vaccination, which prompted a pharmacy manager to suggest a vaccination event, organiser and club member Catherine Woodward said.
Milford Tennis Club vaccination event
A long queue formed from 10am. “We’ve had to bring in another vaccinator,” she said.
Sausages, cups of tea, and Sal’s Pizza vouchers were offered to those getting jabbed. Woodward’s husband, Mark, was on duty at the door.
Getting back to doing what we enjoy
The turnout was really pleasing, she said. At least 140 people were vaccinated at the club, with the last few walk-ins having to be turned away, because they ran out of vaccine.
“Lots of children turned up with their parents. They can see it’s not a scary thing; it’s just part of keeping our community safe.”
The Prime Minister talked about getting back to what people enjoyed doing, and tennis was part of that for club members, Woodward said.
