Well it is if you believe they went hard and fast last year :)
An excellent piece of journalism from Stuff for once!
I should have put a warning to preserve Rich80105's delicate sensibilities when Labours perfidy and propaganda is exposed, but then he probably isn't reading any posts he hasn't started himself....
Iread somewhere that the PM was going to dish out some more spin on
Wednesday, now that another 8.5million Pf vacs were ordered.
Must admit we need some sort of timeline and who gets the jab when on it. At
the moment I am starting to think that they are not sure what day it is.
It is Tuesday today, Gordon.

Some more transparency would be helpful.
It is Wednesday tomorrow.
We can be fairly certain that once all border staff have been
vaccinated, some priority will be given to health staff (and that may
include all staff at hospitals and others dealing with the sick or
dead), Those in aged care facilities (possibly including staff), other
elderly people, etc, etc.
The rate at which vaccinations will occur will depend on the staff
available (they have been contacting recently retired medical people
to be employed - not all will agree, but each person that does agree
changes the timetable.
You have said that we need some sort of timeline and who gets the jab
when on it. Can you explain why, for you for example need to know
rather than just would like to know? GPs and other medical
professionals know that they are next on the list after border
workers; people in aged care probably don't need much notice. Let us
suppose you are going to have the vaccine injection in say April or
May - does it really make much difference to you? It may be possible
for you to seek an earlier slot if you are planning to travel overseas
for example, but most New Zealanders are probably not planning on
doing htat, even if they have been vaccinated. So why do we _need_ a
detailed timeline, Gordon?
