    Hopes the Health Ministry has learnt from this year's flu vaccination campaign

    Hopes the Health Ministry has learnt from this year's flu vaccination campaign


    A report has been released on the campaign, as well as last year's measles outbreak.

    2020 was a record year for flu vaccines, with more than 1.77 million vaccines distributed to general practices, pharmacists and other providers.

    Auckland University vaccinologist Helen Petousis-Harris says the Health Ministry wasn't prepared to vaccinate as many New Zealanders as possible.

    She thinks the Health Ministry would've already learnt it wasn't very nimble, when it comes to responding to an emergency.
