Yesterday saw the Pfizer vaccine being made available to some of our youngest generation - children aged 5 to 11.
The ministry said more than 120,000 doses of the child vaccine were delivered to about 500 vaccination sites around New Zealand.
However, Rotorua mothers wanting to protect their children against Covid-19 were left frustrated and tearful after finding the city's vaccination centre closed on the day the vaccines rolled out to 5 to 11-year-olds.
