Fortress NZ for ever?

Stuff reports:

Fortress New Zealand can begin to open in early 2022 provided all New Zealanders have had the chance to be vaccinated, according to the Government’s hand-picked group of scientists advising on reopening New Zealand to the world.

But that travel should be at first restricted to vaccinated Kiwis going overseas from New Zealand for short trips, and should begin with shorter stays in managed isolation. …

If you still have to go through MIQ, you have not really reopened the border.

I would have thought that say three months after every NZer has had the option of being fully vaccinated, we remove all travel restrictions for those adults who are vaccinated.

Also I would expect there to be an annual Covid-19 booster vaccine just as we have an annual flu vaccine.
