Cabinet’s agreed to make the Pfizer jab available to everyone aged 12 years old and over.

The Prime Minister says they’ll be able to book with other young people from next month.

Medsafe granted provisional approval for the move in June.

From tomorrow – parents and caregivers who are already eligible - can book their children in at the same time.

Ardern says an estimated 265 thousand people are in the expanded 12-15 year old age bracket.

Dr Bryan Betty Medical Director of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners joined Simon Barnett & James Daniels to discuss how to get the needle into as many arms as possible.
