The Auckland Metro DHB (which includes Auckland, Waitematā and Counties-Manukau) has today reached the milestone of 90% of its Pacific population having had their first vaccination, with 82 percent now fully vaccinated.

This is closely followed by the Auckland DHBs eligible Maori population, who as of earlier today, had less than 20 doses to go before hitting 90% for first vaccinations. This milestone is expected to be reached later today – with 81 percent of its eligible Maori population also now fully vaccinated.

*These cases were tested outside of the Hawke’s Bay but travelled to the region under permitted travel. They have been isolating in the region and the public health risk is believed to be low.



The virus has been detected in a second wastewater sample taken on Thursday this week, in Tairāwhiti Gisborne.

Public Health Officials are not aware of any recovered cases in the region who may be shedding the virus and believe there is a strong possibility there could be an undetected case in the community.

Anyone living in the region with any symptoms that could be COVID-19 – no matter how mild – is encouraged to get a test.

Testing is available today and over the weekend at the following location:

  • Drive-through at 110 Peel Street
    • 1pm – 5pm (today)
    • Saturday and Sunday: 9am – 4pm

Vaccination centres operating today and over the weekend.

Today’s cases

Today, we are reporting new community cases in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hawke’s Bay, Nelson Tasman and Canterbury.

There are no new cases to report in MidCentral or Taranaki.

Regional updates

We’re continuing to ask anyone in New Zealand with symptoms – no matter how mild – to get tested, even if you’re vaccinated. Please remain isolated until you return a negative test result.

If you are not vaccinated, now is the time, as vaccination is number one defence against COVID-19. Your DHB or local health provider will have plenty of opportunities to make this happen.

Testing and vaccination centre locations nationwide can be found on the Healthpoint website.


There are three new cases to report in Kaitaia today; all are household contacts of a previously reported case. 

Testing and vaccination sites open in Northland can be found on the Northland DHB website.


Today, there are 64 new cases being reported in Auckland.  

There continues to be a daily review of testing numbers and testing locations to ensure good coverage of risk areas.  

Health staff are now supporting 3,652 people to isolate at home, including 908 cases. 


There are 21 new cases to report in the Waikato.  

Four previously reported Taranaki cases who were tested in Taranaki, but normally reside in the Waikato have been reclassified as Waikato cases.  

We continue to encourage anyone with any symptoms that could be COVID-19 to get a test, particularly those living in Te Kūiti.  

Seven pop-up and dedicated testing sites are operating across the Waikato today in Hamilton, Huntly, Te Kūiti, Thames, Taumarunui, and Ōtorohanga.  

For a full list of testing and vaccination centres open this weekend in the Waikato, see the DHB website.  

There are two COVID-19 positive patients in Waikato Hospital, one in a ward and one in the Intensive Care Unit.   

Bay of Plenty

There are six new cases to report in the Bay of Plenty today. All six cases are in the Western Bay of Plenty and are contacts of existing cases.

One case is receiving care in Tauranga Hospital.


There is one new case to report in Mangakino today. The case was tested in the Waikato and is being managed by the Waikato DHB.

Testing and vaccination is being stood up in the area today. Details on the hours and location will be available from the Lakes DHB Facebook page.  


There is one linked case to report today in Nelson-Tasman today.

A number of locations of interest have been published for Nelson-Tasman and we ask people living in the region to check these daily.

Several pop-up testing sites are open today and tomorrow:

  • Saxton Fields carpark, Suffolk Rd, Stoke, 9am to 6pm
  • Trafalgar Centre carpark, Paru Paru Rd, Nelson, 9am to 5pm
  • Richmond Showgrounds, 359 Lower Queen St, 9am to 6pm
  • Motueka Recreation Centre: Old Wharf Rd, Motueka, 10am to 3pm

Anyone with any mild symptoms that could be COVID-19 is asked to get a test.



There is one new case to report in Canterbury today.

Case interviews are underway to determine how they are linked to the outbreak and identify any contacts and exposure events.

The case was notified after the Ministry’s 9am reporting cut off and will be added to the case tally tomorrow.

Myocarditis and pericarditis

Vaccination is one of our key defences against COVID-19 and it’s important that anyone who is eligible, gets vaccinated. There is now an alternative vaccine – AstraZeneca - for those who don’t wish to be vaccinated with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Like many vaccines, people can experience mild side-effects, and if you have concerns about these, you are encouraged to speak to your health care provider.

A rare adverse reaction of Comirnaty, the Pfizer/BioTNech COVID-19 vaccine, is myocarditis and pericarditis. Although this is a rare side-effect, both healthcare professionals and consumers are reminded to remain vigilant and monitor for any symptoms. 

Symptoms of myocarditis can include new onset of chest pain, shortness of breath and an irregular or rapid heartbeat. It’s important that anyone who experiences these symptoms in the days to weeks after vaccination seeks medical attention promptly. Vaccination with Comirnaty vaccine gives good protection against COVID-19 infection which itself can cause myocarditis.

The benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of rare side effects. The Ministry of Health, Medsafe, the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring and Manufacturers continue to closely monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
