The threat of Covid is far from over - and neither is the national vaccination roll-out. 

Jacinda Ardern has made a plea to New Zealanders who were vaccinated at least four months ago to start receiving their booster shots. 

She's encouraging people in Auckland to take advantage of walk-in centres, like the Auckland Airport Park and Ride facility on Verissimo Drive in Māngere.
