MINISTRY OF HEALTH UPDATE
February 1, 2022

There were 22,508 booster doses administered yesterday, taking the total to date to 1,324,160. Also, 5826 paediatric doses were given yesterday, bringing the total to 169,316.

With Omicron in New Zealand, the best thing you can do is get your booster as soon as it is due.

Boosters lower your chances of getting very sick and being hospitalised. Being boosted also helps slow the spread of the virus. If you’re over 18 and your booster is due, please get it now. Evidence to date is that the rate of adverse reactions to a booster dose is similar to people receiving their second dose.
