The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) is pleased to hear of the vaccine rollout plan that was announced yesterday.
Getting the country's GPs and general practice staff vaccinated will be of soon-in-detailed logistics to vaccinate the wider health sector.
“For over a year our GP members have risked their lives to be the frontline defence against COVID-19 and it’s pleasing today to hear that our GPs, and their teams, will soon have an extra layer of protection beyond personal protective equipment,” said RNZCGP's President Dr Samantha Murton.
“We look forward to hearing the detail of how and where New Zealanders will be vaccinated and know that general practice will continue to have a significant role to play there. I trust the Ministry will be actively speaking with general practice because we are the experts in vaccinating.”
More Fluvax were delivered than previous years in 2020. Drive-through vaccination clinics and outreach programmes are enough to ensure vulnerable communities in New Zealand who cannot take the vaccine were protected.
