NZ and Aus's vaccination programmes have both been off to slow starts.That sounds like a very poor vaccination programme.
I suppose you could argue with no-few local cases there was no urgency.
NZ says they want to start vaccinating under 65s from the start of next month. Oz is a bit further ahead of them.
However, there's something I think lots of people don't realise. Countries first in line have paid more for the vaccines, paid more upfront and also taken a greater risk. There are drawbacks to being first financially.
