The Student Volunteer Army is rallying its troops to help out with Super Saturday. 

Volunteers will direct traffic and people to clinics tomorrow. 

700 group members have volunteered more than 1500 hours at vaccine clinics in the last three months. 

Chief executive Sam Johnson says it's a shame New Zealand did not mobilise as many volunteers as it could have for the vaccine rollout.  

"At a time like this, and with a mobilisation like this, volunteers should have been at the heart of it, very much like the UK did."
