The Prime Minister has announced that an extra 500,000 doses of Pfizer vaccinations will be coming from Denmark next week. Together with the 250,000 extra doses that have arrived from Spain, this means that vaccination can continue apace and Jacinda Ardern encourages everyone to book now for their vaccination.

“There is now nothing holding us back,” said the Prime Minister. “We know the vaccine helps break chains of transmission.”

She pointed to the USA, where hospitals are heavily dominated by the unvaccinated.

She said half a million Aucklanders are now fully vaccinated.
