b) Stock of 2nd shot of Pfizer/Biontech covid-19 vaccines on-shore in New Zealand (Do not count the quantities which have been administered as 2nd shots on patients and general public)

c) 1st shots of Pfizer/Biontech covid-19 vaccines administered on patients and general public

d) 2nd shots of Pfizer/Biontech covid-19 vaccines administered on patients and general public

e) Stock of 1st shots of Pfizer/Biontech covid-19 vaccines to arrive by 10th September 2021, 17th September 2021, 24 September 2021 and 1st October 2021 (Please do not include the purchase orders placed on and after 1st September 2021)

f) Stock of 2nd shots of Pfizer/Biontech covid-19 vaccines to arrive by 10th September 2021, 17th September 2021, 24 September 2021 and 1st October 2021 (Please do not include the purchase orders placed on and after 1st September 2021)
