Te Whatu Ora issues Covid booster reminder
Te Whatu Ora is reminding those eligible for Covid boosters to book them in before Christmas. New Zealand has been experiencing another wave of COVID-19 over the last few weeks with hospitalisations creeping back up. Last week Medsafe approved boosters for the XBB 1.5 strain which dominated this winter, but now only makes up about a fifth of cases. Te Whatu Ora's Doctor Nicholas Jones spoke with Ingrid Hipkiss.
