'This is war': Epidemiologist's call to arms for vaccinations

A call to arms in our ongoing battle against Covid-19 - and it's all about being doubled-vaxed. 

Auckland recorded eight new cases in its Delta outbreak yesterday -- and there are currently seven unlinked cases from the past fortnight. 

Tauranga residents with symptoms are being urged to get tested, after Covid was detected in the city's wastewater. 

Auckland University epidemiologist Rod Jackson told Mike Hosking it's crucial we stamp out unlinked cases -- and we all get vaccinated as soon as we can. 

"We need vaccine passports, you can't get on a plane without being vaccinated, no essential worker should be able to leave Auckland without being double vaccinated, we shouldn't let anyone into the country unless they are double vaccinated. This is war, this really is war."
