The event titled "Paekākāriki Pop-up Vaxx" was an audio recording of a local COVID-19 vaccination effort specifically targeting the LGBTQ+ community, held in Paekākāriki on November 21, 2021. Organized by local LGBTQ+ groups and health organizations, this event aimed to provide an inclusive and safe environment for community members, especially transgender and non-binary individuals, to get vaccinated. The background was set in St. Peter's Village Hall, elaborately decorated to echo pride colors and create a welcoming atmosphere.

The recording featured voices from various participants, including Ayesha Verrall, Barbara Edmonds, and Jan Logie, representing the government's presence and support. Interviews conducted by Gareth Watkins added depth to the narrative, exposing listeners to individual concerns and experiences related to the vaccination.

During the event, vaccine hesitancy and barriers faced by the rainbow community in accessing healthcare were addressed, such as discomfort in medical settings and discrimination issues. Advocates emphasized the importance of understanding and accepting the diverse needs of the community to improve vaccination rates.

The initiative displayed a strong community spirit, with people turning up in support, even if already vaccinated, showing solidarity. The presence of numerous Members of Parliament and the recognition from health authorities confirmed the significance of tailored community-focused health interventions.

Moreover, the presence of groups like Endo Warriors Aotearoa highlighted the intersectionality of health needs and the importance of inclusive practices in medical care and messaging. This group provided information and resources about menstrual health to anyone, recognizing that menstruation is not exclusive to females.
