Essential workers who received their first Covid vaccination at a drive-through clinic in Christchurch are having to rebook their second dose.
The drive-through at Christchurch Arena was set up to fast-track vaccinations for customer-facing essential workers but closed on Saturday.
More than 13,000 people got their jab there and received a follow-up booking for their second in three to six weeks' time.
They've now received a message telling them the drive-through has changed its hours of operation and their second appointment is no longer available.

They're asked to rebook through the Book My Vaccine website or by phone.
The DHB says the drive-through was only temporary to get essential workers vaccinated as quickly as possible.
It says it has more than 100 clinics providing vaccinations throughout Canterbury.
