Coronavirus: Government doesn’t know how many border workers there are, but still insists 90 percent have got COVID-19 vaccine

While the new border case has not been vaccinated, officials insist 90 percent of the frontline border workforce has had at least one dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.

But 90 percent of what? That’s the question the Government is still trying to answer, admitting to Newshub it doesn’t know exactly how many border workers there are.

Forty-seven days ago, frontline border workers started getting vaccinated. It was meant to keep them and us safe from COVID-19.

But on Thursday, the Ministry of Health was informed of one new border-related case.
