A large portion of Auckland’s GPs and urgent care clinics will be ruled out of providing Covid-19 vaccinations because they have to be able to provide up to 75 immunisations a day, NZ Herald reveals. Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners’ medical director Dr Bryan Betty has expressed that 75 vaccinations in a day “would be a lot for many surgeries.” Betty also said barriers to GPs being involved so far included the requirement that surgeries are able to carry out a set number of vaccinations in a day as well as manage the huge amount of administration required to gain and record written consent for each dose.
