The Bacon Butty Breakfast COVID-19 vaccination clinic is back – with an added option of yoghurt and granola cups, and fresh fruit!

Anyone receiving their COVID-19 vaccination at the earlybird clinic on Wednesday ( 29 September) between 7am and 9am can choose between a bacon and egg butty or a yoghurt and granola cup, and select a piece of fresh fruit.

Bevan Clayton-Smith, Taranaki COVID-19 Vaccination programme senior responsible officer, says “We had such a positive response from the Taranaki people last week, we thought we would do it all again. Removing barriers for people so they can get their COVID-19 vaccination is vital, so if offering breakfast enables people to find the time on a Wednesday morning to come to the clinic, it’s got to be a good thing.

“More and more scientific evidence is surfacing that COVID-19 is here to stay and it will only be a matter of time before it is endemic in New Zealand. We have this window of opportunity as a country, and a community, to save lives and protect the vulnerable by getting vaccinated.

“Anyone who is yet to receive their first dose - your time is now! Please come along, or book into one of the hundreds of Taranaki appointments available on Book My Vaccine.”
