Auckland doctor Nicholas Cooper has expressed his frustration over delays to arm general practices with Covid vaccines, leaving vulnerable people unprotected, NZ Herald reports. Cooper, a GP of 30 years, cares for about 1850 patients from his practice which shares his name in Epsom. Cooper went through weeks of mahi (work) in March as part of a proposal to receive and administer the Pfizer vaccine, but hasn’t heard anything from the Ministry of Health. However, New Zealand is only a week away from the general public vaccine rollout.
