As a big portion of the country rolls up their sleeves for a second vaccination this weekend, 89 percent of eligible New Zealanders aged 12 and over have had their first dose and 78 percent are fully vaccinated.

Today's updated figures show 57 percent of Mori and 72 percent of Pacific people are fully dosed.

Of eligible Aucklanders, 83 percent have had their second injection, 68 percent in Northland, 76 percent in Waikato and 78 percent in Canterbury. Between the three DHBs in Auckland, Auckland DHB is sitting at 95 percent first doses.

After wastewater testing in Gisborne, Napier and Taranaki all found traces of the virus on Friday, the regions are hustling to raise vaccinations and encourage testing.

Mayor of Gisborne Rehette Stoltz said the detection of the virus in Gisborne and Napier wastewater samples is a concern.

There are no MIQ facilities, or known Covid-19 cases isolating, in either city.
