International students get behind Super Saturday vaccine drive
International students in New Zealand have come out in support of the drive to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
A group of students showed their concern and social responsibility by telling their stories to The New Zealand Herald ahead of the Super Saturday vaccination drive on 16 October 2021.
Education New Zealand Chief Executive Grant McPherson said it was great to see international students getting involved in the vaccination effort.
“New Zealand reaching its 90% vaccination target will aid in our recovery and bring us one step closer to welcoming more international students to Aotearoa,” he says.
“These are people who bring an array of benefits to community wellbeing, our global relationships, a productive workforce, a strong education system and enabling trade and diplomacy.”
