Chris Bishop and David Seymour are in a frenzy over our incompetent Health system not vaccinating enough NZers…
The Prime Minister is defending a lag in the rate of COVID-19 vaccinations, highlighting how New Zealand is not in as desperate a situation as some other countries.
The Ministry of Health published statistics about the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in New Zealand on Wednesday, showing the number of jabs administered so far sits at about 95 percent against the Government’s plan.
Nearly every other country in the OECD is now ahead of New Zealand with their COVID-19 vaccine rollouts, with just Japan behind us. It’s got National “deeply concerned” for Kiwis while ACT worries about whether we’ll meet our targets.
…this is the underfunded NZ public health system we are talking about here!
Did everyone just forget about the Measles epidemic they oversaw?
Measles outbreaks that put New Zealand children in intensive care before likely spreading to Samoa where children died could have been avoided if the Government heeded expert advice and closed immunity gaps fuelled by a racist health system.
…none of that has been fixed!
The Covid vaccination roll out will be just as wretched and until we start funding health properly it will remain so.
If we aren’t going to tax the rich and the corporations properly to fund public services, you can’t be shocked when this public services fall over!
