New Zealand has made a deal with Denmark and Spain for the purchase of doses of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines.
Denmark will provide 500,000 additional vaccines and Spain will provide almost 250,000 doses.
New Zealand will receive a total of 1.8 million doses from Pfizer throughout the month of September.
This is important as demand for Covid-19 vaccines has soared and prior to this deal the next shipment of vaccines was going to arrive in October.
Currently, New Zealand is completing around 70,000 vaccinations each day.
