Total vaccinations
Definitions
  • Cumulative total: All vaccinations that have been administered and entered into the COVID-19 Immunisation Register up until midnight of the night before the data is published.
  • Eligible population vaccinated %: Vaccinations administered divided by HSU population estimates for the eligible population (12+).
  • Total population vaccinated %: Vaccinations administered divided by HSU population estimates for the total population (0+).
  • Vaccinated or booked: Count of individuals who have either received their vaccination or have booked via Book My Vaccine to receive a vaccination.
  • Eligible vaccinated or booked %: Count of individuals who have either received their vaccination or have booked via Book My Vaccine to receive a vaccination divided by HSU population estimates for the eligible population (12+).

HSU population estimates are available in the downloadable spreadsheet at the bottom of the page. Throughout the rest of this sheet doses per 1,000 are based on eligible (12+) population.

Bookings are only counted if the site is using Book My Vaccine. Bookings made through other Patient Management Systems are not counted.


Cumulative vaccinations by ethnicity

Ethnicity * First dose administered First doses per 1,000 people Second dose administered Second doses per 1,000 people
Māori 361,310 633 236,057 413
Pacific Peoples 223,947 781 156,831 547
Asian 589,689 >950 449,018 750
European / Other 2,304,762 844 1,736,489 636
Unknown 32,668 - 23,048 -
Total 3,512,376 834 2,601,443 618

* 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.


COVID-19 vaccinations: weekly updates

Data in this section is as at 11:59pm 12 October 2021 and is updated weekly on Wednesdays.

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.

DHB capacity plans for the remainder of the year are undergoing review.


Vaccine uptake

Maps and data related to uptake rates of the COVID-19 vaccine across the country are available on the pages linked below. These show vaccination records aggregated by area of residence for all New Zealand residents, Māori communities, and Pacific communities.

Vaccine uptake per rate ratio (unadjusted) Māori and Pacific compared with Non-Māori non-Pacific

Vaccine Uptake per 1,000 (HSU) Rate Ratio, Showing Prioritised Ethnicity, vs Non-Māori Non-Pacific, By Age Band

In the Chart above, rate ratios tell us the rate Māori or Pacific People per population are being vaccinated compared with non-Māori non-Pacific. This comparison can be split by age group.

  • A rate of one means the groups being compared are being vaccinated at the same rate.
  • A rate over one means Māori (or Pacific) are being vaccinated at a higher rate than non-Māori non-Pacific.
  • A rate under one means Māori (or Pacific) are being vaccinated at a lower rate than non-Māori non-Pacific.

This table shows the rate of doses administered (per 1,000 population) to Māori or Pacific Peoples, relative to the rate of doses for Non-Māori and Non-Pacific groups. Less than one means the group is receiving a lower proportion of doses than would be expected if equity is being achieved. More than one means they are receiving a higher proportion of doses than would be expected if equity is being achieved. Exactly one means doses administered are in line with their proportion of population. See detailed explanation here

At all ages the size (weightings) of the age groups becomes a major contributing factor to comparative ratios, which is why the all ages (12+) figure may not appear to be in line with the age splits.

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.


Vaccinations by group by week

Priority Group First dose administered Second dose administered
Group 1 66,505 64,134

For definitions of the groups and further detail see the downloadable 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.


Total cumulative doses per 1,000 people by ethnicity

Total cumulative doses per 1,000 people by ethnicity

This chart shows both first and second doses. As a result this chart may exceed 1,000 doses per 1,000 people.

* 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.


Wastage of vaccine stock

  Wastage
New Zealand 0.25%

Wastage is vials that have been reported as wasted since 13 July in the Inventory portal by DHBs or central warehouses divided by vials used over the same time frame.

This spreadsheet is based on the information made available at the time of publishing and may be subject to changes. Please take note of any notes and caveats on each sheet.

The below attachments provide some analysis on our progress on equity. The two PDF files are high level summaries of overall progress. The Excel documents are interactive and provides the ability to delve further into those overall numbers. NB: These Excel workbooks use features that are non-compatible with versions of MS Office 2016 and earlier.


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.
