New Zealand will shorten the gap between second COVID-19 vaccine doses and boosters and push back the phased reopening of its borders in measures announced Tuesday to keep the omicron variant at bay.
COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkin told reporters the government has agreed to a ``suite of precautionary measures’’ in light of the threat posed by the omicron strain of the coronavirus.
The gap between a second vaccine dose and a booster will be shortened from six to four months, meaning 82 percent of vaccinated New Zealanders will be due for a booster by February. (AP)
