Today, we are reporting 12,057 first doses of the paediatric Pfizer vaccine administered yesterday to 5 to 11-year-olds, bringing the total 39,829.

We want to thank children who got their first dose yesterday and the caregivers who supported them. 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.

Today, we are reporting 36,226 boosters administered yesterday, bringing the total to 864,929, which is 52% of the eligible population.

Palmerston North COVID-19 case
Today the Ministry of Health is reporting one new possible Omicron case in Palmerston North. Local DHB MidCentral District Health Board announced the case this morning.

This case was in a MIQ facility in Christchurch and tested negative on day 9, before being released on 16 January (Sunday), after returning a negative test result on five occasions throughout their stay.

The case became symptomatic yesterday and got tested. They returned a positive COVID-19 test result yesterday evening.

Urgent whole genome sequencing is underway though, as this case was staying at a MIQ facility at the same time as known Omicron cases, as a prudent measure it is being treated as a Omicron case. Investigations are underway to determine the source of infection, including possible in-facility transmission.

The case is considered to have been infectious from 17 January (Monday) and there are exposure events associated with their movements, including an early childhood centre. Initial locations of interest associated with the individual have been published this morning and more will be added as they are identified.

The case, who has had two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now isolating at home with their family.

Information on testing sites in Palmerston North can be found on HealthPoint.

Our objective is to stamp out the infection and prevent any onward transmission related to this case.

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.

Auckland Omicron case update
As announced last night, there are now three confirmed Omicron cases in the Auckland region. These include a MIQ border worker and their household contact, and a worker at Auckland Airport.

At this stage, one additional contact associated with these cases has tested positive for COVID-19. This case is a household contact of the MIQ worker and was already isolating when they tested positive. Whole genome sequencing is underway, but the assumption is this case has the Omicron variant.

The highest priority for local Public Health staff relates to contacts who were at the Ara-Tai Café Half Moon Bay at the same time as the worker at Auckland Airport. This location of interest is high risk and people that may have visited this location are asked to follow the advice below.

As of this morning, a total of 88 contacts have been identified in relation to the MIQ border worker. At this stage, 84 have returned negative test results and two have returned a positive result. This includes a positive household contact that was reported earlier this week, and an additional household contact reported today.

As of this morning, a total of 39 contacts have been identified in relation to the worker at Auckland Airport. At this stage, 13 have returned negative test results.

Investigations into the source of infection are ongoing.

Omicron update
To date, there have been 440 Omicron COVID-19 cases detected at the border since 1 December, and 32 cases of the Delta variant.

Today’s cases
We are reporting new community cases in Auckland, Lakes and Hawke’s Bay, Canterbury and in the West Coast.

*The Christchurch case and one of the Hawke’s Bay cases were announced yesterday after being notified after the reporting deadline. These cases are being added to the tally today.

Following public health investigation and further testing, the person on the West Coast who returned a weak positive test result earlier this week is deemed to be a historical case. This case has been re-included in the case totals today, following being under investigation and therefore was removed, until the case was deemed to be historical.

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.

Please also continue to check for any updated Locations of Interest and appropriate health advice, updated regularly on the Ministry’s website.
