「それでファイザーはいかがですか?’ニュージーランド人はファーストフードの修正でCovidジャブを手に入れることができます

ファーストフードの修正を求めているニュージーランド人は、食事と一緒にワクチンが欲しいかどうかすぐに尋ねられる可能性があります. 国は少なくとも予防接種を目指しています 90% of its population and the government is now in talks with fast-food giant KFC to help reach that goal.

“We just want to reach out to where people are,” the deputy prime minister Grant Robertson told RNZ on Thursday morning.

New Zealanders love fast-food. It has one of the highest per-capita distribution of KFC and McDonald’s outlets in the world. When Auckland’s lockdown lifted on Tuesday night, 人 rushed to queue up for a meal, and just a day prior, two gang associates were caught trying to smuggle a boot-full of KFC そして $100,000 in cash into Auckland, despite strict border controls.

“Given that under level 3, we know that a lot of Aucklanders are going to be really excited about getting their takeaway fix and could we use that possibility?” Roberston said.

Ensuring people wait for 20 minutes after their vaccine dose could be challenging if they are waiting in a drive-through for food too, Robertson said, adding that these types of logistics will need some work before the plan could go ahead.

He said the government is working through the options, including looking at other spots people frequently venture, not just fast-food joints.

An Auckland councillor, Jo Bartley, first suggested the idea to Restaurant Brands, which operates KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell in New Zealand, 月曜日に. She posted to social media on Wednesday that Restaurant Brands had informed her the government had reached out “to discuss the potential of this concept”.

The government is using “every tool in the toolbox” to get the population vaccinated, which it says will be the best chance for the country to get back to living a life free of lockdowns.

先週, it started its “Mr Whippy-style” travelling vaccine bus roll-out.

Robertson was hesitant to offer incentives to get people out for a vaccine, saying that international examples have had mixed effects, and it raises ethical questions for those already vaccinated. But he said individual businesses have been offering sandwiches or coffees to encourage people to get their doses, which he supports.

ニュージーランド 報告 23 new cases of coronavirus in the community on Wednesday, with all but one linked to existing cases in the current outbreak. It is a slight jump in cases, after the country reported 14 火曜日に. 今ある 1108 cases in the outbreak.
