15 JANUARY 2021FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEResponding to news that Samoa is set to begin its vaccine rollout next month, New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union spokesman Jordan Williams says:”This is, frankly, humiliating for New Zealand. What are we paying our taxes for, if not to secure a vaccine for the worst pandemic in living memory? Even libertarians agree this is a core role of government. How is Samoa beating us to the punch when we’re 200 times wealthier?””We urgently need to vaccinate our border workers. They are our single biggest risk of a local outbreak and another costly lockdown. We cannot risk waiting until April, May, or June for this crucial first step.””When the Prime Minister returns from holiday she needs to front up on day one with a timeline that will see our border workers vaccinated in line with our international neighbours.”
