Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is set to receive the COVID-19 vaccination by going hard and early to show leadership during the middle of the year before the public get to have it.

According to the AM Show on March 1, Ardern said she would receive the vaccine before the general population at around mid-2021.

“I'll do it publicly, and for those interested, they can watch it. I've been really mindful of not taking a vaccine from someone else for who it's really critical for. There are people who are at risk and I'm not one of them,” PM Ardern said.

“I do want to demonstrate that it's not only safe to take at the time but long term it's safe, and so I will do it early on before we start the mass rollout.”
