Fully vaccinated New Zealanders over the age of 18 will be able to get a booster six months after their second dose of the Pfizer jab, says The Spinoff. Preliminary trials have shown that while the Pfizer jab’s effectiveness wanes over time, a booster shot brings it back up to 95.6%. Because the Pfizer jab continues to protect people even after six months, and the country’s Covid-19 situation is likely to look very different by next year, the government says is “no rush” to get a booster immediately when you’re eligible. Healthcare and border workers will likely be first in line for a booster.
