    More New Zealanders are keen to get in front of a needle to have the Covid-19 vaccine

    More New Zealanders are keen to get in front of a needle to have the Covid-19 vaccine


    More than 891-thousand doses have been delivered across the country.

    17 per cent of the total population has received a first or both Pfizer dose.

    Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield says there's increasing willingness to be jabbed.

    He says the latest research report shows 80 per cent of people 16 years and over are likely to get a vaccine or have been vaccinated.
