Recruitment criteria for vaccinators widened

From First Up, 5:31 am on 14 April 2021

The Immunisation Advisory Centre has so far trained up about 4-and-a-half-thousand vaccinators and is looking to ramp that up further. The centre's manager, Loretta Roberts, told our producer Matthew Theunissen what its work involves.
