Ministers and officials have flagged the possibility the vaccine rollout could falter in June – despite engineering it to avoid that very thing
As of Sunday evening, New Zealand had around 378,000 Pfizer vaccines available for use. That surged to more than 400,000 with the delivery of 60,840 doses a few days later.
This marked only the second week that vaccine stocks had fallen since the rollout began. Two weeks ago, we had more than 450,000 unused doses in frozen storage.
We may run out, and we have only fully vaccinated 2.5% of the population! By comparison Israel has done 59%, Chile 38%, US 35%, England 28% and Singapore 22%.
