Vaccine bookings are open to everyone over the age of 30 from today.

A record 80,000 New Zealanders got a vaccine yesterday, while testing numbers also reached a record high – nearly 50,000 across the country.

Hipkins said the government is bringing on board more vaccination facilities, at a rate of about 50 more locations per week.

He said they have streamlined the way primary care providers are brought on board, halving the amount of time it takes and streamlining the reimbursement process.

He said the government is also working on getting supermarket workers vaccinated as a priority and feedback has been extremely positive so far. From tomorrow, more border workers will be required to have had at least one dose, and by the end of September the wider border workforce will also need to have been vaccinated.

About 2,932,455 doses have been delivered so far, he says, over a million of those in Auckland.
