The Ministry of Health is considering starting vaccinations in South Auckland as a priority after border workers, NZ Herald reports. On Thursday morning, Otago University academic and GP Ben Gray called for South Auckland vaccinations to begin this month. Meanwhile, cabinet ministers have received advice regarding a nationwide vaccination schedule but have yet to finalise or publish a complete plan. Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said frontline health and emergency workers would be up next, after border workers and their families, but further decisions had yet to be signed off by Cabinet.
