The Kawerau District is being congratulated after starting Super Saturday with the lowest first dose rate in the country, and ending the day the biggest daily percentage increase for first doses given.

The Ministry of Health says a huge number of people across the country went out and got their Covid-19 vaccination.

The Ministry says 85 per cent of New Zealanders have now had their first dose, up two per cent on Super Saturday.

Sixty-five per cent of the population are fully vaccinated, up three per cent on Super Saturday.

“Across the country, 10,825 Māori went out and got their first dose and a further 10,877 got their second dose, which has helped Māori vaccination levels jump a huge 5.4 per cent since last Sunday,” says a spokesperson for the Ministry.

“Overall, 65 per cent of the Māori population or 375,000 people have now had their first dose - 250,000 of those are fully vaccinated.”

By ethnicity, Māori also had the highest proportion of first doses on Super Saturday, with 50 per cent of all Māori vaccinations being the first dose.

“Congratulations to Kawerau District, which started Super Saturday with the lowest first dose rate in the country, but by the end of yesterday, it had the biggest daily percentage increase for first doses given.

“Māori vaccinations in Hawke’s Bay jumped a massive three per cent on Super Saturday, with more than 1100 getting their first dose.

“A huge shout out to the Super Saturday vaccine centres with the highest first dose vaccinations rates - Park and Fly at Auckland Airport, PAK'nSAVE Napier and Christchurch Arena Carpark.

“Thank you to all those who were hesitant, but went out and got their vaccine.

‘Now’s a great time to have a chat with friends and whanau, help answer any of their questions they might have, and encourage them to go out and get their vaccine today.”

See below for a full breakdown of the vaccination figures from over the weekend.

The best traction would be to set a date to remove the Internal borders ASAP, drop to level 2 everywhere, let our stranded team members overseas back in rather than torturing them, and stop fretting about every single case or “breach”. A few unvaccinated deaths will incentivise some more. Then life as normal from Christmas. It’s really very simple. But this Government likes to make it appear complex so it can control everything and everybody.

Still a long way to go yet

We may get some traction by Christmas when first jabbers have had the second and a couple of weeks later better immunity develops. All because of lacking supply and stroll out program because of supply. World leading ha what BS. Still no where near enough ICU, MIQ, or staffing with visa issues. World leading nasty spin TV joke
