Yesterday, on the first day they became available, 14,367 child (paediatric) vaccine first doses were administered to 5 to 11-year-olds throughout New Zealand.

More than 500 sites around New Zealand can administer the vaccine to this age group, with more coming online soon.

We want to thank children, and the caregivers who supported them, who got their first dose yesterday. We encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated.

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.

Because at this early stage of the rollout the number of children being vaccinated in some of our smaller communities is relatively small, we are not initially providing breakdowns of the data by geographical region or ethnicity in order to ensure their privacy.

Some DHBs may, however, choose to provide updates on how the 5 to 11-year-old rollout is progressing in their area, subject to these privacy considerations.

The usual daily and weekly website updates will continue. We will also report separate data for 5 to 11-year-olds, including daily totals and a cumulative total.

Update on the MIQ worker in Auckland

One symptomatic household contact of the MIQ Omicron case has today tested positive for COVID-19. The case was already isolating. They will be formally included in tomorrow’s case numbers. Further case interviews are currently underway but, at this stage, there are no exposure events associated with this case. All other household members have returned negative tests to date.

As of this morning, a total of 86 contacts have been identified in relation to the MIQ border worker, including 7 household and 79 close contacts. At this stage, 75 have returned negative test results and one a positive result, as outlined above.

From the exposure events linked to the initial case, there are 10 people from the two bus journeys who are yet to be tested and are being followed up in person.

No other close contacts linked to this cluster have returned positive results.

The investigation into the transmission route continues and testing of staff from the Stamford Plaza facility continues today.

Our objective is to stamp out and prevent any onward transmission.

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.
