Call For Improved Planning In Covid-19 Vaccine Rollout To Front Line Healthcare Workers


GPNZ (General Practice New Zealand) is calling for a more
co-ordinated and planned approach to ensure that available
Covid-19 vaccines are able to be accessed by those health
care practitioners working within at-risk
communities.

“It’s easy to understand that vaccine
over-availability will happen and the need for use within
specific timeframes,” says Jeff Lowe GPNZ Chair.
“Auckland Primary Health Organisations (PHOs) have been
working hard over the weekend with DHB colleagues and want
to ensure that frontline Primary Care workers are
prioritised, especially those working within Level 3
conditions within at risk communities.”

“It was
disappointing to see Auckland GPs and Nurses turned away
from Covid-19 vaccinations recently and we must do
better,” he says. “These Nurses and Doctors are putting
themselves in risk to protect the community and this should
be considered when decisions about vaccination and available
stock are made.”

“A well-planned vaccine plan
should not rely on random communications with select groups
when oversupply is an issue,” he says. “Let’s ensure
this is an equitable and well though-out
process.”
