From Morning Report, 6:09 am on 22 June 2021

A professor of medicine believes more children will get immunised for Covid-19, if they're not put at the end of the vaccine queue. Medsafe has given a provisional all-clear for 12 to 15 year olds to receive two Pfizer shots - with final government sign-off expected next week. Auckland University's Des Gorman told our reporter Katie Todd that's great news. He says while they don't get as sick from the virus, they can be 'vectors' who transmit it easily.
