    Nurses waiting for the Covid-19 vaccine are breathing a sigh of relief

    Nurses waiting for the Covid-19 vaccine are breathing a sigh of relief


    They're amongst more than 50-thousand frontline health workers set to be immunised later this month.

    It follows border staff and then their households - a group of about 50-thousand receiving the jab this week.

    The Nurses Organisation's Kate Weston says it'll bolster our health system ahead of future outbreaks.

    She says we've seen problems overseas when nurses themselves became sick, and some died.
