Child vaccine available from today

The child (paediatric) Pfizer vaccine is now available for 5–11 year-olds at centres throughout New Zealand, including walk-ins, drive-throughs, hauora providers, community pharmacies, and general practices.

More than 120,000 doses of the child vaccine have been delivered to around 500 vaccination sites around New Zealand, and these health care providers are well prepared for the start of the vaccine rollout to tamariki.

With reports of strong demand for child vaccinations today, particularly in Auckland, we want to thank those who have been waiting at vaccination centres or holding for the 0800 number, for their patience.

“It’s encouraging to see this strong start to the rollout and extra resources are being deployed to the busiest sites to reduce queues as much as possible,” says Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield.

Parents are advised to check BookMyVaccine.nz or call the Covid-19 Vaccination Healthline on 0800 28 29 26 to find a walk-in or drive-through near them or to make an appointment. Many general practices are offering child vaccinations for their enrolled patients so contact your local doctor to find out more or visit Healthpoint.nz

For a list of all the vaccination sites offering 5 to 11-year-old vaccines in each district this week visit the Unite Against Covid-19 website.

The number of centres where the child vaccine is available will also increase over the coming weeks, as health providers who have been taking a well-deserved summer break reopen.

Update on the MIQ worker in Auckland
As previously reported, all seven household contacts of this Omicron case have already returned one negative test result. All these contacts remain in isolation and will receive further tests.

Of the case’s 67 close contacts identified, 43 have already returned negative test results.

The five close contacts previously identified in Taupō, who have all returned negative day five test results, have now been transferred to an MIQ facility in Waikato.

Auckland Regional Public Health is continuing to work with MIQ staff to look for any possible routes of transmission between returnees at the Stamford Plaza and the MIQ worker. Additional testing is being arranged for MIQ staff at this facility.

Additional whole genome sequencing of other positive returnee cases at the Stamford Plaza is also being completed to provide further information for the source investigation.

As we have done previously, our objective is to stamp out and prevent any onward transmission.

New Zealand’s vaccine rollout remains our key defence against all variants of COVID-19, including Omicron. With 93% of the eligible population now double-dosed and the booster programme underway, New Zealanders are well protected. We want vaccinations to continue to increase and ask everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.

From today, people over the age of 18 are able to book online to have their booster shot four months since their last vaccine dose.

We’re reiterating our call for anyone who lives in Auckland with symptoms – no matter how mild – to get a test, even if you’re vaccinated and to please stay at home until you return a negative test result.
