J.A.B for L.A.B Vaccination Event
Vaccinations have proven their effectiveness in keeping our communities safe from Covid-19. There have been many movements encouraging everyone in Aotearoa to get their vaccinations. A lot of them have been targeted to a wide age group, and so we looked to how we could tailor communications in support to educate young people about the Covid-19 vaccinations and provide opportunity for them to get vaccinated. We are so very proud that our very own Synthia Dash and Michelle Buchan have organised an incredible event to encourage our youth to get vaccinated. On Friday 3 December, from 10am-4pm the J.A.B for L.A.B – tickets Vaccination event will take place at Youth Service West, New Lynn in Tāmaki Makaurau.
“There was a lot of leading up work to help combat some of the misinformation that was going on” says Synthia about the J.A.B for L.A.B event. “Our focus has always been on educating rangatahi so that they are fully informed to make their own decision about the vaccine.”
Anyone who comes down to get a vax at the event will go into the draw to win double pass tickets to the L.A.B concert in January at Western Springs! “We’ve got several of those to give out” shares Michelle. Along with giveaways, spot prizes, vouchers, and kai - this is one exciting event.
The hāngī kai will be served at 12 noon, but if you can only come in the morning don’t worry about missing out. From 10am in the morning, you will be able to indulge in a classic sausage sizzle as well as receive a ticket to come back before 4pm to get your hāngī kai.
If you are already vaccinated, you can still participate by getting a booster shot if you are eligible!
So, if you find yourself free this Friday, please come down and visit us at our vaccination event J.A.B for L.A.B - tickets! at Youth Service West 3 Rata Street New Lynn and follow the signs and crew, no appointment required, simply walk-in or drive-through.
