All about the Race to Vax 90
Porirua Mayor Anita Baker has laid down the challenge to Hutt City Mayor Campbell Barry to see who can reach 90% first!
Mayor Baker wants to help encourage people to get their jabs, with incentives, sponsorship and prizes right through November as we hit targets.
It's all about keeping our city safe, so let's get to it.
Hutt City has jumped on board, and the race is on! Who's going to get to 90% first? #RaceToVax90
