COVID VACCINATION

COVID VACCINATION

Morena e te iwi,

 

These are the latest comms regarding the vaccinations:

 

He aha: Ka nuku Aotearoa ki te Pae Mataara 4 – Aotearoa NZ to move to Alert Level 4

Mai: 11: 59 PM, 17/08/2021 – for 7 days, to be revised in 3 days

 

Vaccination Programme  

  • We want everyone in Aotearoa who has a booking in the system to get vaccinated but we do need to prioritise the safety of whānau first. To limit the movement of whānau during Level 4, the vaccination programme will pause for all of Aotearoa for an initial period of 48 hours.
  • This means that all vaccination centres in Aotearoa will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday and appointments are cancelled - people who have appointments on these days will hear from the Ministry of Health soon to provide information on rebooking. You will be contacted by text, email or phone call.

 

 

General key messages received from DPMC last night:

All of New Zealand will move to Alert Level 4 at 11.59pm tonight. 

  • A positive case of COVID-19 has been identified in the Auckland community with no link established between the border or managed isolation.
  • In response, New Zealand moves to Alert Level 4 at 23:59pm tonight for seven days with a review at day 3.
  • There are no new cases to report from managed isolation or at the border.
  • This is a response to a community case in Auckland which is currently under investigation and possibly linked to the Delta variant.   
  • The decision to change Alert Levels reinforces the need to take swift and robust action around the latest case to detect and stamp out the possibility of any further transmission.   
  • An intensive source investigation around the latest case is being undertaken by the Auckland Regional Public Health service (ARPHS) along with public health actions and alert level changes outlined today, are designed to break any potential chains of transmission.
