Covid-19: Vaccination numbers take a hit, but younger age groups give a boost

From Morning Report, 6:10 am on 20 August 2021

An Auckland vaccination clinic its doing about half the numbers it was before the lockdown - but is relieved to be back up and running.

Many clinics resumed again after a one day pause to get alert level 4 protocols in place.

Experts say while that will put a dent in the progress to vaccinate the country, it's had a major boost by a decision to offer the shots to children 12 and over.
