Aunty Maxine Burney-Bluett on her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine

For Maxine Burney-Bluett, getting the vaccination was an easy decision. “It’s about protecting our whānau, our pakeke, our kaumātua, from COVID-19. The discomfort is really very minor, much like the flu injection. Maxine encourages all the whānau to get the vaccine, to protect themselves and their whānau. Watch her experience below.
