yes - be vaxed

Yes, the vaccination does work in reducing your chance of catching and spreading Covid - by over 90 per cent. It also reduces your chance of needing to be hospitalised by around the same amount. That does however leave a small chance of spreading, hence these warnings. The fact that most of these warnings result in very few, or no cases, confirms how well the vaccinations are working.

Most of those places you need to be vaxed, so does the vax actually work?

Sorry to say !!

But its starting to look like in Tauranga "if you don’t need to go there - DON’T "!!!! Clearly there are "residents" that have been "mixing it" OUTSIDE the TGA area and are happy to keep doing so WITHIN the TGA area !!
