Covid-19: Fully vaccinated man refused MIQ work because he did not get Pfizer

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 8 September 2021

A man who's been vaccinated against Covid-19 in China has been refused work in MIQ here - because they're only accepting people who've had the Pfizer jab.

He says there has been confusion among his employer and health workers regarding whether he is considered fully vaccinated after receiving two doses of Sinopharm.

The Ministry of Health says it's considering whether other vaccines could be allowed for border workers, but at the moment Pfizer is the only one recognised here.
