CEO Update – Monday 30 August 2021

In this edition of the CEO Update

As most of the country prepares to move from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 3 we must not lose sight of the precautionary measures we all have to take to protect ourselves and our community from COVID-19, not the least of which is getting vaccinated. In this week’s update, we look at fascinating data from overseas on the efficacy of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and the enormous difference it makes in preventing serious symptoms, hospitalisation and death. We’re charging forward with vaccinations here in Canterbury thanks to the collective efforts of a lot of hard-working people.

Also in this edition, we look at the Lyttleton Port Company’s high vaccination success and take a fantastic behind-the-scenes tour of Canterbury Linen Services (CLS).
