This is really smart and will save a lot of time.
Especially when the boosters arrive and you’re going to have to get one every few days, or even multiple times per day, you’re going to be looking to save time.
New Zealanders looking to get a fast-food fix could soon be asked if they would like a vaccine with their meal. The country is aiming to vaccinate at least 90% of its population and the government is now in talks with fast-food giant KFC to help reach that goal.
“We just want to reach out to where people are,” the deputy prime minister Grant Robertson told RNZ on Thursday morning.
New Zealanders love fast-food. It has one of the highest per-capita distribution of KFC and McDonald’s outlets in the world. When Auckland’s lockdown lifted on Tuesday night, people rushed to queue up for a meal, and just a day prior, two gang associates were caught trying to smuggle a boot-full of KFC and $100,000 in cash into Auckland, despite strict border controls.
“Given that under level 3, we know that a lot of Aucklanders are going to be really excited about getting their takeaway fix and could we use that possibility?” Roberston said.
Convenience is key.
This also covers up conspiracy theories about side effects.
If a person develops a heart problem after their vax, it could just as easily be from the fried food they ate.
This isn’t a joke, by the way.
It’s really something that is happening, in real life.

It’s hard to even make jokes.
