NZ approves its 1st COVID-19 vaccine, warns against ‘vaccine nationalism’

New Zealand on Wednesday approved the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, making it the country’s first approved shot. Initial batches of the vaccine are expected to arrive by March-end, with frontline workers and those most at risk to be vaccinated first, it said.
