Driving the vax incentive

Blue Light CEO Rod Bell and driving programme manager Ken Harema, with Kayla Murphy in the car Blue Light is giving away in its prize draw at Christmas Vax in the Park.

Christmas Vax in the Park will provide the ultimate early present, with those receiving their first and second vaccinations entered into a draw to win a car.

“A car is the present every young person wants,” says Blue Light CEO Rod Bell.

“Blue Light is passionate about keeping our tamariki and rangatahi healthy and safe in our communities, so we are making it as attractive and easy as possible for them to have their first dose before Christmas.”

The car draw will stay open until January 6, 2022, so those vaccinated at Christmas Vax in the Park, who have their second vaccination before this date, can gain a second entry.

There will be drive-through and walk-in vaccinations available from local District Health Board staff, who will be administering the site.

Every person vaccinated at the event will also receive a $25 grocery voucher and an additional entry into a draw for one of two Christmas hampers, valued at $500 and $250.

Christmas Vax in the Park runs from 1-7pm at Tauranga Racecourse on Saturday, December 4. Santa will be there giving away spot prizes, and there’s also a barbecue and Christmas entertainment.

No bookings are required unless you need transport to the event – you can book your ride by phoning: 0800 VAX PARK (0800 829 7275) or texting: 022 502 1184.

This is absolutely ludicrous. Can’t get their vax but now there’s even a car up for grabs. Bloody ludicrous. I got a round wine biscuit (my choice, there was also a Gingernut) and a cup of tea or coffee. I’ll bet all of a sudden these people that ’couldn’t’ get their vax will find a way of getting their lazy butts off the seat. Rewarded for responsibility is TOTALLY WRONG. It does change their apathetic attitude it just means they want another handout. Absolutely appalling.
