Grey Bruce Vaccine Model gains worldwide attention
The Grey Bruce Health Unit’s Hockey Hub operation vaccine method is gaining worldwide attention, as New Zealand health officials duplicated the model.
More than 16,000 people took part in a mass vaccination event in New Zealand, based on the Hockey Hub model. The three-day clinic, running July 30 to August 1, averaged just over 5,000 clients per day. A dozen vaccinators – averaging an injection every 90 seconds – worked across 240 booths set up in Auckland.
Coordinators had extensive contact with Grey Bruce Public health officials to create what they called the largest vaccination clinic in New Zealand.
