Fisher & Paykel Healthcare was vaccinating employees and their families, this week, at its Highbrook headquarters in Auckland.
The Ministry of Health is piloting workplace vaccinations with Mainfreight, Fonterra, The Warehouse Group and Fisher& Paykel Healthcare, before rolling the programme out more widely later this month.
The drive-through facility is an extension of the MoH that has been widened to include the families of employees.
Fisher & Paykel chief executive Lewis Gradon said that they aim to have 100 per cent of their workforce vaccinated and were responding to requests from employees to include whanau.

"With the help of the MoH we instituted this idea of vaccinating family bubbles," he said.
"We mobilised 150 volunteers with all the logistics over three days of moving all these cars through our site through our facility, registering people and getting the family bubbles vaccinated."
The aim is to deliver 360 jabs each day and they were hoping to vaccinate 1000 people over the course of the programme.
