Hawke's Bay needs 29,000 people to roll up their sleeves this "Super Saturday" so the region can reach the enviable 90% vaccination milestone.
As of Friday, 202,820 vaccination doses had been administered, 59 per cent of the Māori community had received at least one dose, and 93 per cent of the Pasifika community had received at least one dose.
About 70 per cent of the population has received at least one dose, and 60 per cent are fully vaccinated, and the Hawke's Bay District Health Board, along with regional leaders, is encouraging people to get their first or second jab this Saturday.
Super Saturday is a nationwide campaign to encourage people to get the Covid vaccine, which thousands of eligible people in the region have yet to do.
Central Hawke's Bay mayor Alex Walker said the CHB District Council was proud to support the day alongside the Hawke's Bay DHB and Te Taiwhenua ō Tamatea.
The council put the call out to the community and business networks to facilitate and support the groups in encouraging and enabling as many of CHB residents as possible to get out and get their shot.
Walker said she was vaccinated because she wanted to protect the people and businesses of Tamatea Central Hawke's Bay from Covid-19.
"I know that the best way to do this is through vaccination."
She encouraged people to share the message, and take the opportunity to get out there and get their shot this Saturday to ensure the district continues to "thrive this summer and into the future. Ka Pai!"
CHB councillor Exham Wichman said he had been vaccinated for his whānau.
"It's all about protecting our loved ones against the virus, and the best way to do this is by getting vaccinated."
He said Māori aged 29 and under had the lowest vaccination rate of all groups, and he wanted to encourage the community to rally the group to get their dose.
"It's quick, easy and free. Let's do it for each other."
Tukituki Labour MP Anna Lorck said the call was ours to make.
"It's up to us to make the choice to be able to do more of what we love, be able to see those we love; and protect those who can't be vaccinated."
