Team Of 400,000

Michael from Trentham

Around 400,000 eligible people living in NZ still need their first Covid vaccination jab.

That is a lot of high risk takers for spreading and contracting the disease.

One Pfizer jab is insufficient. One way of describing it, is: one jab gives up to 57% protection whereas two jabs gives up to 95% protection.

The full vaccination of two Pfizer jabs is mandatory for all workers in MIQ facilities, ports and airports. It is now mandatory for another grouping of workers with the first vaccination inserted by November 15 and these are: all educational teachers and school staff, healthcare workers and staff.

Listened to a seemingly educated middle aged English woman on ZB this morning who said that in NZ there is so much over concern and anxiety with Covid 19 whereas in England no one is very concerned and just go about their normal lives.
Well so much for concern. In the UK 8.4 million have been infected (England 7.1 million) and 139,000 deaths (England 121,000). Concerned NZ: 4,900 and 28.
