From today, anyone aged 18 and over who had their second vaccination at least four months ago can get their booster dose.

People can book an appointment with the COVID Vaccination Healthline team on 0800 28 29 26, or they can visit a walk-in vaccination site. More than 5,300 booster shots were administered yesterday (5,328).

From 17 January 2022, people can book boosters at BookMyVaccine.nz if it’s been four months since their second dose. Those who had their second dose at least 6 months ago, can book an appointment now through Book My Vaccine.

From January 17, children aged between 5-12 will be eligible for the vaccine, those aged 12 and over are already eligible.

Omicron update

We are today reporting 23 cases identified at the border.  While whole genome sequencing of these cases is expected soon, the likelihood is that Omicron will continue to be the most prevalent variant at our borders.

This variant of COVID-19 continues to be having a significant impact globally, so it is not unexpected to see an increase of Omicron cases at the border.

Today’s cases

Today, we are reporting 17 new community cases in Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

We are also reporting two cases in Taranaki, which were reported after our cut-off period – so these will be officially added to tomorrow’s tally.

Regional updates

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

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

Auckland

There are five new cases being reported in Auckland today.

Health and welfare providers are now supporting 1,091people to isolate at home, including 303 cases.

Third Omicron case confirmed.

Public health staff are continuing to manage the third case of Omicron who has tested positive with the variant.

They were a household contact of a case and have been in isolation during their infectious period. At this stage there are no locations of interest or exposure events.

The risk to the community from this case has been determined as extremely low.

Waikato

There are three cases in the Waikato today and all are linked. Two of the cases are in Te Kuiti and one is in Hamilton. 

Pop-up testing sites are operating in Waihi and Whitianga today. For details of all dedicated testing sites operating over the holiday period, please visit the DHB page or DHB Facebook page. 

Public Health staff, primary care and manaaki providers in the region are supporting 51 cases to isolate at home. 

Bay of Plenty

Today we are reporting nine new cases in Bay of Plenty. All are in the Tauranga area and all are linked to previously reported cases.

Taranaki

Today we are reporting two cases in Taranaki. They are household contacts of each other in Taranaki.

Public health staff are continuing to investigate to determine links to any previously reported cases in the region.

Public health staff are also working to identify any other locations of interest and these will be updated on the Ministry of Health webpage as soon as possible.

The Emergency Department at Taranaki Base Hospital has been identified as an exposure event. The DHB is working with those who may be affected.

At this stage, no staff have had to be stood down.  Anyone at the Emegency Department between Saturday 1 January at 6.30pm and midnight on Sunday 2 January will be considered a casual contact.

Media releases over the Christmas break

Over the Christmas break there will be regular COVID-19 updates published and tweeted each day apart from:
