Death of a patient with COVID-19

Sadly, today we are reporting the COVID-19-related death of a patient at Auckland City Hospital.
The patient, who was in their 50s, was admitted to Auckland City Hospital on 17 November.
Our thoughts are with the patient’s whānau and friends at this deeply sad time.

Clarification on COVID-19 testing, immigration status

The Ministry is aware of reports of individuals concerned about getting tested for COVID-19 due to their immigration status.

We would like to remind anyone in New Zealand that if you return a positive test, the Ministry and your local public health team will work with you to identify and contact people you have been in close contact with. If necessary, information about a positive test result may also be shared with emergency services in your area to help them in their response, but it will not be used for immigration-related or enforcement purposes, as outlined on the Ministry’s website.

We continue to urge anyone in New Zealand with COVID-19-related symptoms – no matter how mild – to get tested, even if they are vaccinated.

We also encourage people to take advantage of the weekend to get vaccinated, with many sites available nationwide.  

COVID-19 testing and vaccination site locations are available on the Healthpoint website.

Third primary vaccine dose for immunocompromised patients

Updated advice from the COVID-19 Vaccine Technical Advisory Group (CVTAG) on the third primary dose for immunocompromised patients has been published on the Ministry of Health website.

In October, a third primary dose of the Pfizer vaccine was recommended for individuals who are severely immunocompromised, because they are at higher risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 and might not produce a sufficiently strong immune response after two doses of the vaccine.

Updated CV TAG recommendations include information about the individuals who should be offered a third primary dose, with dialysis patients now eligible along with the groups already identified. Guidance on how to accommodate biologics and immunosuppressive therapies has also been added and dosage thresholds removed to support clinical discretion.

Advice for clinicians on the guidance is available through the Immunisation Advisory Centre, and this information will be updated periodically through the Immunisation Handbook.

A third primary dose for severely immunocompromised people different from a booster. A third primary dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for severely immunocompromised people is off-label usage and includes prescription and consent obligations on the prescriber, the vaccinator, and the patient.

Today’s cases

Today we are announcing new community cases in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Lakes. There are no additional cases to report today in Wellington, Wairarapa, Canterbury or MidCentral. All Taranaki cases have now recovered.

Information on the new cases is included in the regional updates below. Anyone living in these areas with symptoms, no matter how mild, is urged to get tested – even if they are vaccinated – and remain isolated until they return a negative result. A full list of testing centres can be found on the Healthpoint website.

Regional updates


There are four new cases being reported in Northland today. One case in Whangārei was already isolating and there are three new cases in Kaikohe – all four cases have known links.

All active cases are being cared for in the community. A case that was in Whangārei Hospital has been discharged.

There were 1,153 swabs taken across Northland yesterday and testing centres open today can be found on the Northland DHB website.

Vaccination clinics open in Northland today can be found on the Northland DHB website.

There are 18 community centres available for testing across Auckland today. The testing centres at Northcote, Balmoral, Ōtara and Wiri continue to operate extended hours to increase access to testing.
Public health staff are now supporting 4,371 people to isolate at home around Auckland - this includes 1,441 cases.


There were 11 new cases confirmed in the Waikato overnight, with six from Huntly, three from Kawhia, one from Te Kūiti, and one from Ōtorohanga.
