    Health experts are once again warning the public that a vaccine isn't a silver bullet against Covid-19

    Health experts are once again warning the public that a vaccine isn't a silver bullet against Covid-19


    The Ministry of Health has so far recorded a total of 19 cases linked to the new UK and South Africa variants.

    Otago University international health expert Philip Hill says there's more to be done than just getting a jab, including following public health guidelines.

    He says this would help keep the virus at bay until a vaccine arrives.
