According to the South Canterbury District Health Board, 36,819 of these doses were first and 20,710 seconds in which, by the end of 2021, approximately 52,500 people over the age of 12 will be offered vaccinations.

Jonathan Bird, the company’s health and safety manager, said that once the crew received both doses, it would mean that 70 per cent of the plant’s staff would be fully vaccinated.
