Booster interval shortened - what's happening in Porirua

From Midday Report, 12:40 pm on 3 February 2022

As of tomorrow, the wait to get a Pfizer booster dose after a second jab will drop from four months to three.

The change makes another million people aged 18 and over eligible for their third shot.

More than 100,000 Māori will be eligible from tomorrow.

The plan is to get more New Zealanders protected before the expected Omicron outbreak here.
