    Queenstown has exceeded expectations in the Covid race to reach 90 per cent

    Queenstown has exceeded expectations in the Covid race to reach 90 per cent


    Ninety-five per cent of the eligible local population is now fully vaccinated against Covid.

    The achievement comes as the average rate for those fully-jabbed in the southern district sits at 88 per cent.

    Queenstown Lakes District Mayor Jim Boult says it's amazing.

    He says a goal had been set to reach 95 per cent by Christmas time - and they've knocked it out of the park.
