Super Saturday: COVID vaccination in the Papanui area

This Saturday October 16 is Super Saturday and New Zealand needs a really big turnout to get our vaccination rates up. Papanui residents can get a jab with no appointment on Saturday at: Bargain Chemist Northwood and Papanui; Remedy Pharmacy, Springfield Road; Unichem Crisps Pharmacy Wairakei Road; Unichem Elmwood; Orchard Road vaccination centre at Christchurch Airport.

There are also bookable and walk-in vaccinations available at various local locations prior to Saturday.

The big drive-through vaccination event at Christchurch Arena will get under way at 9am Saturday and there will be entertainment to keep the kids occupied.

Vaccination is the key to ending lockdowns and keeping our community safe from the Delta variant, so please get along to one of the many drop in sites for your shot or encourage friends and family who need a nudge. For more information head to the Super Saturday link at
