Waipā has hit the 90 per cent mark for first Covid vaccinations and is leading the Waikato.
Cambridge North is sitting on 84 per cent fully vaccinated and is in a close race with Oaklands-St Kilda on 82 per cent.
Waipā still had 40 active cases on Tuesday, 39 in Te Awamutu/Kihikihi and one in Karāpiro. Labour MP Jamie Strange said this week an announcement on whether or not Waikato would come out of level 3 lockdown would not be made until November 15.
Meanwhile Waipā district councillors this week discussed what they would do with the $258,645 remaining in the district’s Covid Recovery Fund.
Deputy mayor Liz Stolwyk was in favour of getting the hospitality and retail sectors back operating effectively.
Mayor Jim Mylchreest said the council had to focus on those areas and support getting young Māori vaccinated.
“Any resources we can put into this is paramount,” he said.
