The race to immunise the entire country is New Zealand’s next big Covid-19 challenge, RNZ reports. Training to administer the Coronavirus vaccination is expected to start next month, and will require 3000 more healthcare staff. But fears are surfacing that some people won’t accept the jab, and it’s these Kiwis which a government campaign will target. The first people to be vaccinated against Covid-19 will depend on if the virus is in the community or not. If there is no community transmission, it’ll be border workers first. New Zealand has four vaccines on order, with the first due to arrive in March.
