    Hi Tony

    see my post on this matter a few weeks ago.
    I was similar to you -reset password - what password?
    Like you I was not prepared to wait in queue for the 0800 Nr -a valid Nr.
    However, I got chase up email the next day -this time telling me to reset my password (the one never ceateds0 so I created a new one.

    I had my second vaccine on Sunday -no problems -lots of vaccinators.
    If in doubt ring the 0800 Nr or you can always ph Ministry of Health -Covid 19 0800 35854653 -very helpful

    I received a text (I live in North Canterbury), and followed the prompts to do my two bookings via the interweb on my phone. No problems - there were (I think) three different places to choose from where I could get the vaccinations, and I chose my local health practice where I am a registered patient. My first vaccination is next week, and the second is in July.

    Oddly my wife has still not received a text prompt to book, so I phoned the 0800 number provided in my text - no waiting, just a very pleasant and efficient telephonist who said that they were experiencing this kind of thing - only one member of a couple being contacted - and provided me with a Canterbury DHB number for my wife to phone to make her bookings.

    To be fair , the govt cant give out covid shots if they dont have the numbers of vax they need ...

    but
    how about some honesty from the authorities .
    NZ ONLY 6% are fully vaxed (both shots) . Thats a terrible stat.

    So , given 6% by June , how long to vax 4-5 Million ?
    And , factor in the possible need for booster shots .

    The Yanks are working on a pill instead of an injection. Mind you, it could be like the Irish contraceptive pill for men. Didn't work very well. The instructions said..... "Place pill in your shoe and it will make you limp".

    Logical really!

    It's always a scam, even when it isn't.

    BH got her text yesterday at 8.25am and she made her booking for the 5th July, my text came through this morning, on yesterday's date and time. I have the pii? poor cellphone.

    Rang the 0800 number to book in and the 5th July booked already, so the lady put me down for the 8th July, but she then asked for bh's details and lo and behold she linked us up for the same dates, the 8th, she has to wait 8 min after mine for the 1st and 20mins after my 2nd shot.

    Can't complain about the service here.

    Same with the flu jab, the chemist gave us our flu shots and I was given the rasp-up from my Doctor's nurse for not telling them, tough, BH's Dr didn't mind in the least, much bigger medical centre tho.

    lurking.
