Confirmation from Chris Hipkins -- that the Government is about to reach a deal on vaccine supplies. 

The Covid-19 Response Minister has confirmed to Newstalk ZB that a deal is being reached, to allow the Pfizer vaccine roll-out to continue at the current rate. 

He's revealed it will involve multiple countries, providing us with Pfizer doses. 

Hipkins says old Mike Hosking the Government will have more to say, either today or tomorrow. 

"Multiple bits need to be signed by different actors in this process. I can tell you it's within the next 24 to 48 hours, things should be locked down, locked and loaded. People will have some good news."
