    I would like my jab early since there's rapid spread of omicron expected.

    The bloke who had 10 jabs at once seems to be fine today

    The inflation rate has jumped to 5.9 per cent, Stats NZ has reported.

    Consumer prices during the three months to the end of December put the annual inflation figure at its highest level since June 1990.

    National Party finance spokesman Simon Bridges said Finance Minister Grant Robertson needed to “rein in his spending to avoid adding more fuel to the inflationary fire”.

    “With wage growth of only 2.4 per cent, well under half of inflation’s growth, New Zealanders are going backward. At the same time, we’ve got rising interest rates and record amounts of government spending,” he said.

    NZ’s official jobless figures are ‘abject nonsense’

    First, the good news – 21,300 fewer people in New Zealand are drawing a main benefit, compared to 12 months ago.

    The Minister of Social Development is crowing about this drop in benefit numbers in the December quarterly figures from Work and Income.

    Carmel Sepuloni says “the Government’s strong focus on supporting more people into work is reflected in these figures”.

    However, drill down into Work and Income’s data and the wider picture is far less flattering. The quarterly fall is a drop in the bucket of the surge in benefit dependency under Labour’s watch over the past four years.

    Currently, 368,172 Kiwis are the recipient of a main benefit, 11.7 per cent of the working-age population, whether it be Jobseeker Support, Sole Parent Support or Supported Living.

    When Labour took office, there were 289,788 on a main benefit, or 9.7 per cent of the working-age population. The bulk of today’s beneficiaries are on Jobseeker Support, which has rocketed from 123,042 four years ago, to 187,989 today. That’s a 53 per cent increase. As a proportion of the working-age population, it has leapt from 4.1 per cent to 6.0 per cent.

    Some may have closed for other reasons (give staff a break).
    My Mother got her booster on the 5th so was definitely open then (in Christchurch).
    Have a look at 'ourworlddata' and you can see the boosters climbing over the 3 week period you mention.

    Just balance making stuff up and passing it off as a fact.
    Very Trumpesque.
