    Essential workers who received their first Covid vaccination at a drive-thru clinic in Christchurch are having to rebook their second dose

    Essential workers who received their first Covid vaccination at a drive-thru clinic in Christchurch are having to rebook their second dose


    The drive thru at Christchurch Arena was set up to fast-track vaccinations for customer facing-essential workers - but closed on Saturday.

    More than 13 thousand people got their jab there and received a follow-up booking for their second.

    They've now received a message telling them their second appointment is no longer available.

    They're asked to rebook through the Book My Vaccine website or by phone.

    The DHB says the drive-thru was only temporary to get essential workers vaccinated as quickly as possible.

    It says it has over 100 clinics providing vaccinations throughout Canterbury.
