Cumulative vaccinations

Vaccination doses administered compared to plan doses

Production plan figures are the volumes agreed with DHBs and national providers for expected vaccinations. These figures have been matched with expected supply. Detailed plans are available in the Excel file at the bottom of this page.

The Stock received figures are the cumulative supply of doses to date.

The information provided in this table is based on cumulative DHB plans to the last week ending on Sunday. The final column shows vaccinations administered since Sunday by DHB of service to reconcile total actuals in this table to other total numbers shown. On-going, and as we roll-out the vaccination programme, we anticipate that there could be a potential variance of up to ten percent (plus or minus) between DHB Plans and actual vaccination numbers. This is on the basis that, for example, an unplanned significant event could affect roll-out implementation or some DHBs might exceed their planned vaccination numbers.

Vaccinations by day

Vaccination doses administered per day

This chart shows the count of vaccinations administered on a given day from the COVID-19 Immunisation Register. Note some records are entered in the register at a later date than the immunisation was received. This means that the figures for a given date may move for some time after that date.

** The DHB of residence is where the vaccinated person resides, which may differ from the DHB where they received their vaccination. The DHB of service is available in the spreadsheet at the bottom of the page.

Vaccine available for distribution at week end

Vaccine available for distribution at week end

Vaccine available for distribution is stock (in doses) held at central warehouses. It does not include stock in transit or available at sites ready for use.

Cumulative vaccinations by ethnicity

Ethnicity * First dose administered Second dose administered
Māori 87158 58569
Pacific Peoples 59627 39964
Asian 145208 98649
European / Other 624837 425575
Unknown 7946 5502
Total 924776 628259

* The prioritised ethnicity classification system allocates each person to a single ethnic group, based on the ethnic groups they identify with. Where people identify with more than one group, they are assigned in this order of priority: Māori, Pacific Peoples, Asian, and European/Other. So, if a person identifies as being Māori and New Zealand European, the person is counted as Māori. See Ethnicity Data Protocols for further information.

Ethnicity breakdown by DHB of residence is available in the downloadable spreadsheet at the bottom of the page.

Trained vaccinators and active vaccinators

Trained vaccinators and active vaccinators

Trained vaccinators are individuals who have completed the COVID-19 training. Many trained people are only able to offer a small number of hours to the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Active vaccinators are trained individuals who are actively vaccinating. The number of active vaccinators does not reflect the hours worked vaccinating. For example, one vaccinator may work 40 hours in a week at one DHB and will show as 1 vaccinator in the headcount. In another DHB, 4 vaccinators may work 10 hours each (total 40 hours), but will show as 4 vaccinators in the headcount for that week.

Both counts of trained and active vaccinators are cumulative. The difference between the two is due to a number of factors. This includes: individuals being trained in anticipation of future sites being opened (the largest factor); rostering; leave or non-availability; local health priorities; sites opening and closing.

Usage of vaccine stock

New Zealand 99.5%

Usage is an estimate of how many vaccines distributed to sites are administered to individuals. The analysis is subject to a number of assumptions around how vaccines are distributed and consumed. These assumptions may change over time.

Adverse events following immunisations (AEFI)

Like all medicines, the COVID-19 vaccine may cause side effects in some people. These are common, are usually mild, don’t last long and won’t stop people from having the second dose or going about daily life. Serious allergic reactions do occur but are extremely rare.

Suspected AEFI to COVID-19 vaccines are reported to the Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (CARM). Medsafe is closely monitoring the AEFI reported from the use of the COVID-19 vaccine and will report regularly on their findings.
